Tool Place “No Pee Zone” Sign Onstage For Brass Against

As you are probably well aware of by now, Brass Against’s Sophia Urista made headlines last year after urinating on a fan during the band’s set at the Welcome Rockville festival in Daytona Beach, Florida. The audience member in question volunteered to let the singer relieve herself on his face after she made it clear that she was in need of a restroom. Urista has since apologized for the incident, but Tool decided to poke some fun at her by putting a “No Pee Zone” sign onstage during the opening date of their European/UK tour. The sign said the following:

“NO PEE ZONE No Urine Is To Be Deposited, Placed, Distributed, Sprinkled, Poured And/or Spread In This Immediate Area”

Brass Against’s Sophia Urista Issues Apology Following Onstage Urination

Brass Against’s Sophia Urista has issued an apology after urinating on a fan during the band’s November 11 set at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Daytona Beach, FL. As previously reported, the audience member in question volunteered to let the singer relieve herself on his face after she made it clear that she was in need of a restroom.

Urista said the following:

“Hey everyone. I want to speak to my performance at Rockville metal festival in Daytona.

I have always pushed the limits in music and onstage. That night, I pushed the limits too far.

I love my family, the band, and the fans more than anything and I know some were hurt or offended by what I did. I apologize to them and want them to know that I didn’t mean to hurt them.

I am not a shock artist. I always want to put the music first. I’m grateful for all of your continued love and support.”

Despite the apology, the band have since been banned from events organized by Danny Wimmer Presents and NASCAR-affiliated venues. Danny Wimmer Presents CEO Danny Hayes commented:

“I’m starting to be asked about Brass Against. Let me be clear. I am disgusted by their actions. We are removing them from Voragos and all future DWP events. I apologize to all of the families in the audience. Rock does not need cheap stunts when we have so many amazingly talented bands.”

NASCAR spokesperson Ruyssell Branham also issued a statement:

“Daytona International Speedway doesn’t condone the inappropriate actions that took place during Thursday’s Welcome to Rockville event. We are working with promoter Danny Wimmer Presents to address the issue. The band will not be included in future programming at NASCAR venues.”

This news comes after it was revealed that the incident is being investigated by the police. If charged with indecent exposure, Urista could face a year in jail or a $1,000 fine.

Police Investigating Brass Against Singer’s Recent Onstage Urination On A Fan

As previously reported, Brass Against’s Sophia Urista recently made headlines after urinating on a fan during the band’s November 11 set at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Daytona Beach, FL. The singer was desperately in need of a restroom, so she got a volunteer from the audience, who was willing to let her relieve herself on his face. Now, it has been revealed that the incident is being investigated by the police. According to The Daytona Beach News-Journal, Urista violated Florida statute 800.03, which says it is illegal for someone to “expose his or her sexual organs in public or on the private premises of another, or so near thereto as to be seen from such private premises, in a vulgar or indecent manner.” If charged, the singer could face a year in jail or a $1,000 fine.

For DWP to do a cruise, we had to have something that would make our voyage uniquely ours. The opportunity to work with Sixthman and add a festival on a private island in Belize gave us the twist we were looking for and the comfort of working with a best-in-class partner like the Sixthman team. When else will you ever have the chance to see Rob Zombie and Chevelle on a private island with 3,000 of your closest friends? This is exactly the once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience that DWP likes to create for our amazing fans.”
