Evanescence’s Will Hunt Comments On His Drums Being Set On Fire At ‘Knotfest Mexico’ Mini-Riot

Evanescence drummer Will Hunt has commented on the mini-riot that took place at this past weekend’s ‘Knotfest Mexico‘ date at the Parque Deportivo Oceanía in Mexico City. A broken security barrier that was unable to be repaired saw Evanescence and headliners Slipknot decide to cancel their set over safety concerns.

The cancelled performers saw an angry portion of the audience storm the stage and trash some of the gear on it, including a drum kit belonging to Hunt. In a post shared via his Instagram, Hunt shared footage of the incident and aftermath and commented of the matter:

“So, a lot of questions about this. First and foremost everyone is ok. We love Mexico and as a whole the fans are incredible. The riot that happened was a small group of morons and they WILL NOT change my love for the Mexican people or our fans in Mexico. As for the rest of it, here are my (somewhat comical) take aways.

1st- Do you even riot bruh?! I mean, hell, if you’re gonna do it, REALLY do it!! Burn the whole fuckin’ thing down!!! What you pack of [email protected]$ies did was weak and stupid- JUST LIKE YOU.

2nd. If you’re gonna torch my beautiful @pearl_drums kit that meant the world to me (second video), at least cook some meat or marshmallows over the fire!! Fuckin’ weak ass [email protected]$y AMATEURS!! Again- weak and stupid JUST LIKE YOU.

And 3rd- to the kind worker trying to clean up the mess- before you cart off my still smoldering kit (third video and because it used to rock so hard it’s still on fire!!) you should probably make sure the embers are out because IT CAUGHT BACK ON FIRE SMOKEY!!! So there ya go……… Moral of the story is don’t half ass anything…… least of which, your fucking riot, which again was WEAK AND STUPID JUST LIKE YOU FUCKING MORONS….”
