Sunday Hell On Earth Show Went On, No Suicide

Hell on Earth played their Sunday night gig, but the suicide of a terminally ill fan on stage didn't happen, again. The concert at the Liar's Club, 6416 N. Florida Ave, attracted about 20 fans. Outside, police and television crews waited for the suicide that didn't happen.

The band grabbed headlines when it promised to broadcast the suicide of a terminally ill fan during a concert Oct. 4 in St. Petersburg. The band played that night, but no suicide was reported.

Billy Tourtelot, the band leader, instead used Sunday's concert to declare his candidacy to the St. Petersburg City Council.

"I want your vote," he declared, saying his candidacy was "the only way to change things."

The band was scheduled to play at the Brass Mug on Sunday, but the bar's owner canceled the show.

Well, I think that's it. Hell On Earth has earned their 15 minutes of fame. If they can't muster more than 20 fans from a stunt that has received international attention, then the gig is up. Back to grinding dead rats.
