A fan had his ear bitten off during an Eagles of Death Metal gig

“This is a first,” the general manager of Toronto’s Opera House says.

A man is reported to have had his ear bitten off during an Eagles of Death Metal show.

The incident took place last Saturday (7th May), at Toronto Opera House.

Athena Ellinas-Towers, general manager of the venue, confirmed the incident, telling “This is a first.” She added: “I didn’t actually believe it when someone came up to me and told me what happened.”

Continuing, she said: “I didn’t witness anything, but there was a confrontation between two individuals. The one gentleman that instigated the whole thing was arrested and charged. I’m not sure of the charges; I just saw him being arrested. The police haven’t followed up with me yet. We called them because this is a serious offence.”

There is an absolutely disgusting image of the ear, if you like looking at that sort of thing. Click at your peril.
