Everytime I die fight in Houston!!
Well this week has been exciting, not only did I meet President Bill Clinton, but I just got home from the Take action tour with Every Time I Die as the headliners and holy crap it was crazy. Ok so here is what happened as I was literally right there in in front of the whole deal ( and kinda participated). So at the end of ETID's set Kieth Buckley asked for everyone on the stage, not up front of the crowd but literally on stage. So many people hesitated at first but then started running for the stage. Then suddenly a big fat security guard started grabbing people and saying no one can go onstage even though there were already a good 25 people not including members of The Bled, From First To Last, August Burns Red, and The Human Abstract ( they are all part of the bill remember). So people still tried and some did succeed in out running the security and got on stage. So the fat security guard kept telling people to "back the fuck up" and "what? you better back up" but he had to run to the center of the barricade to try and catch other people trying to get on stage, and thats when crowd members on the opposite end ran to get on stage. Well while the guard was preoccupied at the center of the barricade Jordan Buckley stood with one foot on a monitor and the other on the barricade telling everyone to come up. In a way he was blocking the guard from getting to that side thus allowing more people to come up. Well the guard then went underneath Buckley's legs and tried but failing to grab more people trying to get on stage. Then the security guy got angry and said "fuck that guy" (pointing to Jordan Buckley) and "I don't listen to him" and "Don't listen to that fucker" THEN he turned and PUSHED Jordan down where he fell between the barricade and the stage. Mind you most of the people on stage have no clue what is going on. So then Jordan got up and swung and hit the security guard then grabbed him from behind putting him in a headlock. I and some other audience members as well as the guitarist from the bled tried to pull guard away but that didn't work so then COUGH Cough some people got some punches on the security guys head Cough lol. Then another Security guard came and jumped on Jordan, thats when Kieth Buckley (Jordan's Brother) Jumped on the that guy and small brawl broke out. Well after the fighting was done the guard ran away. yes literally ran away while Jordan gave him the middle finger from the stage. THEN it was apparent that Kieth was bleeding from the back of his head. SO the crew of ETID went to look for either the same security guard or the manager of security to discuss what happened while still enraged. As they talked one Guard (not appropriately in uniform) said he "was on stage and saw the whole thing and your guy ( referring to Jordan) hit our guy first". Let me just say BULL SHIT!!!! That guy was on the side, not even on stage, guarding a door the whole show. So we left still not know what was going to happen as some of the members of ETID were still talking in a separate room, but I did get to talk to Kieth for a bit and this is what he said "I got my ass beat!" with a smirk and still tending to his head wound. I will let everyone know what happened after I left as soon as I can find out. any questions or comments?
