Machine Head Guitarist Walks Off Stage After Getting Hit By Flying Shoe
According to Blabbermouth.net, Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel walked off stage after being hit by a flying shoe during the final song of the band's headlining concert at Vorst Nationaal in Brussels, Belgium on Tuesday (November 29). Fan-filmed video footage of the incident can be seen below. Machine Head's setlist was as follows: 01. I Am Hell 02. Be Still And Know 03. Imperium 04. Beautiful Mourning 05. The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears 06. Locust 07. This Is The End 08. Aesthetics of Hate 09. Old 10. Darkness Within 11. Bulldozer 13. Ten Ton Hammer 14. Who We Are Encore: 15. Halo 16. Davidian Machine Head's "The Eighth Plague Tour" with Bring Me The Horizon, DevilDriver and Darkest Hour kicked off on November 1 in Oslo, Norway and is scheduled to wrap tonight (Thursday, December 1) in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg. Machine Head's new album, "Unto The Locust", sold more than 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart - putting Machine Head in the Top 25 for the first time in the band's 17-year history. Even more impressively, this is the third consecutive album to show at least a 20 percent increase in sales over its predecessor, a virtually unprecedented feat for any band or artist, let alone a metal band in 2011. Add to that the fact that Machine Head's last CD came out four and a half years ago, a period of time that has seen the music market drop by more than 45 percent, and you're looking at something amazing. Machine Head has consistently averaged more than 100,000 copies sold in the U.S. for each of its seven albums and has shifted double that overseas (accruing several silver records in the U.K.), resulting in cumulative worldwide sales of more than 2.4 million. Machine Head's previous CD, "The Blackening", opened with just under 15,000 units back in April 2007 to debut at No. 54 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's 2004 effort, "Through The Ashes Of Empires", premiered with less than 12,000 copies to land at No. 88. Machine Head will embark on a North American headlining tour in January/Febraury with support from Suicide Silence, Darkest Hour and Rise To Remain.
