Look: Man gets ear bitten off at Eagles of Death Metal gig

Just in case you were feeling like the world of rock may have become a little too gentrified or needed a little more bite, let us chew your ear off with this newsbite.

At an Eagles of Death Metal gig in Toronto this week a man bit another guy's ear off.

“Some guys got into a fight in front of us and the one guy bit off the other guy’s ear.” He added, “We had to get security to pick up his ear in case they can fix it.”

Eagles of Death Metal's drummer said the following on Facebook,”A dude in the crowd got his ear bitten off last night at our show in Toronto. First time for everything I guess!”

The manager of the venue they were playing, Athena Elinas-Towers, said to aux.tv, “The one gentleman that instigated the whole thing was arrested and charged.” As for the ear, she admitted, "A customer picked it up, because I didn’t know where it was. She put it on ice and we gave it to the ambulance when they arrived. I asked the police to follow up with me but they never did.”

Now that's a souvenir.
