According to AUX.tv, a concertgoer got his ear bitten off by another man, after a fight broke out at Eagles Of Death Metal‘s Toronto, ON show at The Opera on May 7.
Athena Ellinas-Towers, general manager for The Opera House, said the following:
“I didn’t witness anything, but there was a confrontation between two individuals. It was brought to my attention by the medical attention. 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.”
She added the following about the ear:
“A customer picked it up, because I didn’t know where it was. She put it on ice and we gave it to the ambulance when they arrived. I asked the police to follow up with me but they never did. This is a first, let’s say. I didn’t actually believe it when someone came up to me and told me what happened. It’s just bizarre.”
