Staind’s Aaron Lewis Cuts Texas Show Short, Tells The Crowd “I Don’t Know How To Speak Spanish. I’m American”

Staind’s Aaron Lewis ended up cutting his February 2 show at the Pharr Events Center in Pharr, TX short after being unable to quiet the crowd down. At one point, it was suggested that he try telling the audience to be quiet in Spanish, but he responded by saying: “I’m sorry. I don’t know how to speak Spanish. I’m American.”

Lewis said the following at first:

“I’m gonna try to do something different and special, but you’re not gonna hear it if you’re not quiet. No, you don’t understand — like fucking church! Quiet. I’m only gonna wait for so long, and then I’m just gonna say ‘good night.'”

After a few seconds, the singer continued:

“I don’t understand what you’re not getting. I know I have a microphone, so you can hear me. You’re not gonna hear the song unless it’s this quiet.”

After that, a woman in the crowd said “Tell them in Spanish,” while another man yelled “In español.”

The singer then responded by saying the following:

“I’m sorry. I don’t know how to speak Spanish. I’m American.”

He ultimately got angry after the audience refused to quiet down and decided just to end the show. The frontman simply said “thank you very much” and “have a great night,” before walking off the stage as everyone booed.
