BLACK VEIL BRIDES frontman Andy Biersack stopped the band's concert mid-song last night (Wednesday, February 25) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to berate an audience member for allegedly screaming for support act MEMPHIS MAY FIRE to perform again. Biersack then threw his microphone at the heckler before jumping into the crowd to challenge the fan to a fight.Said Biersack from the stage: "Are you gonna be real embarrassed when a motherfucker wearing mascara knocks your fucking fake ass out right now? I'm so sick of people like you, man. You think you're so fucking good, come up here. We have given you… We have stopped our whole show so that you can play the guitar right now. And yet every single fucking time when we do this, you never have the fucking balls to come up and do anything. Come on! Split the crowd, come play the fucking guitar. Show us what you've got.' He continued: "Look, man, I'm not trying to be all fucking aggressive, but when somebody wants to ruin our show, I want them to show us how much better they are than us, because we get to be up here because of people that wanna see us play. So you can fucking leave or you can play the guitar better right now." Biersack added: "Come on! I have given you the mic 900 times, you drunk piece of shit. Come up here and talk in my face." Fan-filmed video footage of the incident can be seen below. The self-titled fourth studio from BLACK VEIL BRIDES sold around 30,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, "Wretched And Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones", opened with around 42,000 units back in January 2013 to land at No. 7. "Black Veil Brides", was helmed by producer Bob Rock, whose resume includes albums by METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE CULT and many others.
