Eyehategod drummer reportedly assaulted & robbed in Mexico
Eyehategod are doing lots of touring this year, and during their recent trip to Mexico, drummer Aaron Hill was reportedly knifed and robbed. MetalSucks points to an article on Mexican website El Informador, which cites a statement from the show’s promoter, Show No Mercy. It reads (via Google translate):
Today while Aaron Hill was walking to the venue he suffered a robbery. They have a driver at their disposal; but they had been touring the city all afternoon so he preferred to walk to the venue, as his hotel is very close; when 4 people, 2 blocks away, intercepted him and took his belongings while one of them threatened him and made a wound of 5 cm on the left side. He is fine, however he was not able to continue with the show.
It is worth mentioning that neither Foro Independencia, nor SNM, nor Aaron are responsible for this event; It is not possible that you can not walk safely down the street willing to enjoy your Sunday.
We appreciate the support of the Red Cross and the Guadalajara Police for the attention.
Enrique Alfaro hope that this crime does not go unpunished and we can enjoy our city with tranquility.
During the week we will let you know the refund process.
Sad, scary news, but good to hear Aaron is doing okay.
Eyehategod’s tour is scheduled to hit Jersey City’s White Eagle Hall on September 6 with Sheer Terror and All Out War (tickets), and Brooklyn’s Kingsland on September 7 with All Out War, Merauder, and Come To Grief (tickets). Dates here.
