In 2012, a terrible incident occurred at a Lamb Of God concert when a member of the audience, Daniel Nosek, lost his life. The fatal incident occurred when Nosek ran towards the stage and was pushed off the stage by the band’s lead singer Blythe. Unfortunately, however, Nosek hit his head hard and died of his injuries. Blythe was charged with manslaughter, but was eventually acquitted.
In a recent interview on the Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk radio programme, Blythe says that he does not rule out the possibility of the band performing in the Czech Republic again, but that this would require certain conditions to be met.
“I don’t rule it out. But it would have to be under the right circumstances. I mean, I’m allowed to go there. But unless things were worked out in advance with certain people, I think it would be rude to go back there. Because if I went back there to play a show, it would be huge news. And there’s a family who’s still missing a son there. So I don’t wish them to be any more upset than they already are; they’ve suffered enough.
“So, if the circumstances were right and we had their blessing or whatever, I wouldn’t mind going and playing a show and then donating the money to charity or something. But other than that, Lamb Of God really has no business going there, if the circumstances aren’t right, ’cause I don’t want to cause anyone any further emotional duress.”
