Band Photo: Cradle Of Filth (?)

Cradle of Filth has issued the following update about cutting short their Bloodstock Open Air performance:

"Cradle Of Filth were forced to cut their set short after guitarist Paul Allender was hit by an object thrown by a member of the audience, resulting in Paul being unable to finish the performance and requiring medical attention.

"Bloodstock are disappointed that one selfish ticket holder soured an amazing day and a stunning performance by the closing headliners, and hope that the rest of the fans in attendance will enjoy the rest of weekend with the camaraderie and unity that has made Bloodstock Open Air the great festival it is."

hah. hope the guitarist's ok, but pity cradle of filth were headliners. a) they don't deserve it, and b) it would ahve given a more deserving band time for a lonmger set. :)

From what I heard it was a gob stopper thrown at Dani but missed and hit the guitarist in the kidney. Didn't watch them, but I have a few friends that did.

I heard Dani went into the crowd and tried to start a pit. A large member of the crowd took offense and threw Dani back onstage, who unfortunately landed on the guitarist, resulting in the cancelled performance.

Wow, some of the stuff posted on here are really ridiculous.

Some wanker thought it would be funny to throw a god stopper at the band, I am pretty sure they were aiming for Dani as he was next to Paul when the object was thrown, but he moved and it hit Paul instead.

Quite frankly I'm digusted at the behaviour of some selfish people. There were a lot of people there to see COF that day and a few individuals thought they'd ruin it for everyone else. I honestly think they should be named and shamed and banned from next years Bloodstock.

"Dani Filth is a c*** shirts" - Lol Jackrum you have some witty friends. I agree with S though I'd be pretty miffed if someone caused a set to be stopped early.

He was taken to hospital after the incident, being hit in the face by a full can of beer or any other decent object is nothing to scoff at.

Any freaking idiot throwing things at a concert should be kicked out. Even if they don't hit someone onstage they could hit a fellow fan. If a band is on you don't like then walk away. Some people are so immature and selfish....

If they played songs from Midian and not the new rubbish then it wouldn't have happened I reckon. But having said that, its all about Dani Filth and his ego, bin him off and get a new singer and I'm sure they will make an awesome metal band.

Wait ... Abgott was playing at the same tiome as CoF?

Why did anyone even bother to go and see CoF when they could have gone and seen Abgott? =/

Yeah, from what I've heard Bloodstock isn't as amazing as the line-up suggests. I'd go to sonisphere next yuear instead anyday. Especially if maiden ARE headlining. :D

Oh and BTW, the 'Dani is a c***' t-shirts officially made my day. ;D

the objects that were thrown at Paul were a pound in weight and at the speed they were going, they could have killed someone. the gob stopper hit Paul in the spine and then he collapsed, causing Cradle to have to end their performance so that a medic could attend Paul and so they could get him to the hospital so that they could make sure that there wasn't any lasting damage. a few had barely missed hitting Dani, Ashley, a terminally ill fan, and Dani's daughter Luna. so to the people who are bashing them for having to end the set, i'd like to see them get hit in the spine with a baseball going full speed and see if they are able to keep going. Cradle f***ing rules. I hope Paul gets better soon

well i know now never to go to see them live expecially for cof headlining. they'll either a) get objects thrown at them, and they'll have to leave the stage, or b) the lead vocalist will just walk off stage in a fit.... pathetic
