With a successful Brisbane leg and the obligatory celebrations a foggy, nauseating memory, we can only imagine the gut wrenching fear Maddah must have felt when he arrived on sight to learn that Garbage and Paramore's gear was missing in action.
@treefitty5 If you only bought tickets to see Garbage you're stupid. Not even I can fix stupid.— AJ (@iamnotshouting) February 24, 2013
Considering he'd gone as far as to call a customer a "c*#t", his tirade against the tardy delivery drivers was pretty subdued by his standards*.
@anthonymagro yes cunt. I made the roas flood.— AJ (@iamnotshouting) February 24, 2013
Stupid truck finally turned up at 8pm. 11 hrs late w/ drungo driver shrugging his shoulder as saying "so what". I have had to be restrained— AJ (@iamnotshouting) February 24, 2013
@ahor91 When 58 other trucks from same destination arrive on time... Highly suspect. Probably took a detour to Nimben and got stoned— AJ (@iamnotshouting) February 24, 2013
@5lander85 They could have stopped at every Maccas, eaten every item on menu, blown each other in every toilet and still got here sooner.— AJ (@iamnotshouting) February 24, 2013
With all the gear finally on-site, the Garbage performance cancelled, Paramore delayed, and a bunch of other time-table tweeks, the real drama started with reports that flares had been ignited within the crowd. Unfortunately the news got worse when it was confirmed that a teenage girl suffered a serious burn on her forearm after she was hit with a burning piece of stage rigging. She was rushed to hospital for emergency treatment. Predictably Maddah hit Twitter to vent his disgust.
Dear piece of shit who lit the flare in BMTH pit: Tonight you seriously burned and disfigured a young girl. I hope you fucking get yours.— AJ (@iamnotshouting) February 24, 2013
If we catch anyone w/ flares you'll not only be evicted/arrested, I'll dedicate every iota of energy & money I can muster to ruin your life— AJ (@iamnotshouting) February 24, 2013
Sooo that's what it's like to run
If anyone can correctly identify this son of a bitch I will shower you with so much tickets, backstage and cash you wont know what to do.— AJ (@iamnotshouting) February 24, 2013
* When the suggestion that the offending drivers may have spent the day engaging in lewd conduct at every stop along the pacific highway instead of delivering their goods on time is considered subdued, that's saying something.
