Jay Nedry, owner of Jaxx nightclub in West Springfield, Virginia where OVERKILL performed a headlining set last night (Friday, January 26) and is scheduled to play again tonight, has posted the following statement on the venue's web site:
"Jaxx apologizes for the unfortunate situation that occurred at OVERKILL last night. A falling speaker cabinet resulted in a leg injury to a member of OVERKILL's crew [resulting in an abbreviated OVERKILL set]. This has never happened before in the club's history and we are taking steps today to insure that it never happens again. We are very proactive about fan safety and have continual fire and safety inspections so that our patrons can have an enjoyable evening at the club. Thank you to all our fans for your continuing support. Bring your ticket stub from last night for free admittance to tonight's show!"
In addition to OVERKILL, tonight's concert will feature performances by KRASS JUDGEMENT, MONUMENT, KNEEL TO ZOD, DAY OF DESCENT, VATICAN and FALL AWAY.
