Several reports last night claimed in a panic that the Summer Slaughter shows at the Ritz in Tampa, Florida, was delayed by two hours.
Why? Someone was reportedly overheard threatening to shoot the singer of Job For A Cowboy.
What the fuck? Why??? What’d he ever do to you, suspected shooter?
Security were notified and the police were called in. This led to an evacuation of the venue, as concertgoers were frisked for weapons.
In time, the show was allowed to carry on, no problem.
I guess in the wake of the Colorado movie theater massacre and Dimebag’s murder, it makes sense they’d take such a threat seriously.
I was simply taken by all the overblown bloggery in response; you would have thought a dozen people had been gunned down inside the venue.
I’m glad that didn’t happen.
