Eyehategod Drummer Aaron Hill Attacked With Knife + Robbed in Mexico
Eyehategod were forced to cancel their performance last night (July 7) in Guadalajara, Mexico after drummer Aaron Hill was attacked with a knife and robbed. He was assaulted by three men and a woman near the venue they were scheduled to play, the Forum Independence.
According to Informador.mx, Hill chose to walk to the venue prior to the show because the band's hotel was nearby. Along the way, he was confronted by the four people who attacked him. He suffered a five centimeter gash on his left side from the knife and his belongings were taken, but he is doing okay at this time.
Show No Mercy, the show's promoter, made a statement on their Facebook regarding the incident. See the post and a translation below.
Today as Aaron Hill walked to the venue he suffered a robbery. They have a driver at their disposal; but they had been touring the city all afternoon so he preferred to walk to the venue, because his hotel is very close; when 4 people, 2 blocks away, intercepted him and took his belongings while one of them threatened him and made a 5 cm wound to his left side. He is well, however it was not possible to continue with the show.
It is worth mentioning that neither Foro Independencia, nor SNM, nor Aaron are responsible for this event; it is not possible that you cannot walk safely on the street ready to enjoy your Sunday.
We appreciate the support of Red Cross and Guadalajara police for the attentions.
Enrique Alfaro we hope that this crime will not go unpunished and we can enjoy our city with tranquility.
During the week we will let you know the refund process.
