Apparently Ivan Made Some Negative Comment About Jememy’s Book “Death Punched”. He Through His Sticks And Marched Off, As Did The Rest Of The Band, Leaving Ivan On Stage Alone. That’s Where This Video Picks Up.
Ivan Released The Following Statement On The Death Punch Facebook.
“A message from Ivan:
There were a lot of technical problems last night that were seemingly unsolvable. We had to make a decision whether to hit the stage crippled, without being able to hear ourselves; or, delay the start of the show – possibly for hours.
We decided to proceed, but not being able to hear if I was in key, and just guessing where we were in the song frustrated me to the point that I lost my cool.
I’m not saying I handled it appropriately. Matter of fact I’ve never been so embarrassed before. I apologize for taking out my anger on stage. You guys know me and you know how I pride myself on my live performances. I’d never want this to boil over in to something that epically wrong ever again.
To some of our crew, good luck in your future endeavors we wish you the best – we also welcome our new monitor engineer Paul Weber.
To our fans in Memphis – we’ll make it up to you I promise, Houston we we will see you tonight. The rest of the world – yes we are coming.
And to the haters… wipe that smirk off your face …We are not going anywhere … This “ain’t my last dance!”We GOT YOUR SIX”
