Staind’s Aaron Lewis Cuts Oklahoma City Show Short After Telling Audience “Shut The Fuck Up Or I’m Done”

Aaron Lewis (Staind) ended up cutting his March 9 show at The Criterion in Oklahoma City, OK short after becoming angry with the audience for talking during his performance. The frontman was trying to play an acoustic version of Staind‘s “Intro” when he decided to storm offstage.

Lewis told the crowd the following:

“Listen, if you don’t shut the fuck up, you can’t even hear the guitar. So shut up. I’ve got three more fucking minutes — three. Can you please for once…?

Through the whole fucking evening, you guys have talked all fucking night. Shut the fuck up or I’m done.”

He later added:

“It’s so fucking ironic that this fucking song is a ‘thank you,’ and I can’t get you to shut the fuck up to hear it.”

Eventually, he started singing the opening verses, but the audience continued to talk resulting in him putting down his guitar and flicking his cup offstage before leaving. You can see footage of all that below.

This news comes after a similar situation occured during Lewis’ Pharr, TX show.

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.

Dez Fafara commented:

“I think real music has always gotten to me, whether it’s the blues or even real Goth music like Bauhaus and Sisters Of Mercy, as well as outlaw country greats like Johnny Cash, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, and Willie Nelson. That stuff has always attracted me, and this is absolutely the real McCoy. The blues and outlaw country are what made rock n’ roll. They were around before rock n’ roll… and in my head, I’ve always heard these songs heavy.”

He also added:

“I knew right away that I wanted to have guests on this record, and the first guest I wanted was John Carter Cash. I didn’t want this thing to exist without John, without Hank3 or without Randy [Blythe]. Basically, there were a certain amount of guests that I definitely wanted on it, but as I kept asking people, everyone kept saying yes!

Randy and Mark [Morton] are both from the country and they were immediately on board. With John, we wound up talking for two hours when we first met, all about his love of heavy metal and my love of outlaw country and my love of his dad’s music. All he wanted to do was talk about metal and all I wanted to do was talk about outlaw country. It was the craziest thing.”
