This dude was kicked out of Toronto’s SLAYER concert, so he swam back in.

SLAYER played the Budweiser Stage in Toronto Tuesday night as part of their farewell tour. Based on reviews I’ve read, a good time was had by all. Except maybe this dude.

The crowd was very metal, as expected. Some drank too much and threw up while others got a little too into the show. This appears to be the case with a dude from Oshawa named Chris LaRocque, who was tossed out of the show by security for unknown reasons.

If you’re familiar with the Budweiser Stage, it’s isolated from the mainland by a series of channels leading out to Lake Ontario, kind of like a moat.

Chris (Facebook name: TheGuyFromTheShwa), however, wasn’t afraid of a little water. Scott Ian of Anthrax (one of the other bands on the bill) was backstage and able to witness the whole thing. BONUS: Dude was wearing an Anthrax T-shirt.

Anthrax guy managed to make it back to dry land where he was promptly hauled in by the cops and treated for hypothermia by EMT services.

Definitely the most metal guy of 2018 so far.
