Attila's Chris Fronzak With Security Guard

Attila Allegedly Assaulted 3 Members Of Venue Security At Las Vegas Show, Company Says All Staff Acted “Professionally”


A local news report on Attila frontman Chris Fronzak‘s altercation with security over their alleged rough treatment of fans during the band’s set at the Hard Rock Live in Las Vegas, NV yesterday, August 22nd, has shared some more insight into the situation, while also providing a rather amusing headline: ‘‘Snitches get stitches’: Singer mum on attack involving security guard at Strip concert.’

Fronzak was seen in fan-filmed footage striking a security guard in the back of the head at the concert whilst verbally berating the security at the venue for being rough with their fans. The band stormed offstage shortly afterwards, cancelling their set.

NBC affiliate News 3, who filed the report, attempted to contact Fronzak for an interview regarding the matter, to which he replied:

Fans in attendance allege that the band’s bassist Kalan Blehm was also seen slapping a member of the venue’s security, and arguing with them as well. Contemporary Services Corporation were employed by the Hard Rock Live to handle security at the venue that night and their Nevada vice president Jay Purvis commented to News 3 that three security guards were hurt at the show.

According to Purvis, Fronzak sucker punched two security guards while another was hit in the back with a guitar. Purvis stated of his staff “They were all professional in performing their duties for our client, Hard Rock.”

In tweets made after the incident, Fronzak alleged that the security had been extra rough:

The Hard Rock have since released the following statement:

“The safety and security of our fans, staff and performers is our top priority. We are disappointed in the escalation of events at the Attila show last night. While we believe security acted in an appropriate way to protect the best interests of guests, we are reviewing the incident to ensure proper protocol was followed.”
