Firefighters At The Ocean's Auckland Show

The Ocean’s Auckland, NZ Show Shut Down After A Vaping Fan Set Off The Fire Alarm


Per the below footage, German post-metal outfit The Ocean found their set at Galatos in Auckland, NZ shutdown today, May 31st as the result of an audience member vaping in the venue. The resulting smoke is said to have triggered the fire alarm, with firefighters arriving on the scene. The Ocean commented:

“the firefighter shut down our Auckland show tonight, because somebody blew a vape in the room . No kidding. A sudden end to an epic night. When the smoke alarm came off during ‘Triassic’ it was perfectly in tune with the music, so we kept playing until everybody had to leave the building..

Venue staff tried to blame that person who was just trying to be fun and actually nice to us, since an Ocean show without smoke or even haze is a big deal type of compromise. Haze simply serves to make lighting beams visible and create a vibe. Without haze, shit will look dull and bland. Shows without haze suck, plain and simple and with all respect due to local policies in heritage buildings…

Sorry to the ppl of Auckland for not being able to perform the last 2 songs of our set for you tonight. Come to Wellington tomorrow, we’ll make it worth your while 🤘🏻”
