VIDEO: Epica Singer Popped In Head With Drumstick During Show


This is unfortunate, but also kind of funny…in a football-to-the-nuts kind of way.

Epica singer Simone Simons was mashed in the face by a flying drumstick that slipped out of drummer Ariën van Weesenbeek’s hands during the opening song of the band’s April 17 concert at Alcatraz in Milan, Italy. We’ve got fan filmed video footage of the drumstick face-mash at the end of this post.

Simone briefly left the stage to regain her composure before returning a few moments later to finish singing the track “Monopoly On Truth” with no problems and no apparent injuries.

She was probably just a bit shocked to get knocked in the face like that. To me, it looks like the stick was thrown from the audience, but what do I know.

Fast forward to 6 minutes and 40 seconds, and sit back for some fun.

    I’ve had drumsticks flung at me on stage before. It throws you the fuck off, especially when you’re standing in front of the drummer and the drumstick hits you square on the ass.
