Belle frayeur pour le guitariste de Gojira, Christian Andreu, pendant le concert du 18 mai au Sonic Temple festival.

Alors qu’il était en plein concert, une énorme flamme à l’avant-scène lui est arrivée en plein visage. Comme quoi, les effets pyrotechniques ne sont pas sans danger ! Selon Loudwire, Christian aurait d’ailleurs demandé aux techniciens, avant le show, de désactiver le canon se trouvant juste devant lui sur la scène, mais… cela n’avait visiblement pas été fait.

A la fin du morceau, le chanteur Joe Duplantier a demandé au micro “est-il brûlé ? » mais Christian est revenu et a terminé le show, assurant les quatre derniers morceaux comme un guerrier, s’arrêtant simplement à quelques moments pour mettre de l’eau sur sa peau brûlée.

Les nouvelles sont plutôt rassurantes puisqu’on a pu le voir jouer normalement sur scène le lendemain au Chicago Open Air :

(SWIPE LEFT FOR MORE PHOTOS) You are looking at photos of THE HARDEST FRENCHMAN ALIVE, Christian Andreu of @gojiraofficial. Yesterday at @sonictemplefestival, my brothers in Gojira took the stage & destroyed the place. I lost track of time & forgot when they were playing- when I realized they were on, I went running to the stage with my camera. I got there right as they were playing “Backbone”- their tech @notoriouswog was like “Here’s your mic!”- I took off my glasses, put down my camera, & ran out onstage wearing flip-flops (which I immediately kicked off- hard to rock in flops) & started singing. Suddenly there was a HUGE blast of flame- SCARED THE SHIT outta me, ‘cause I didn’t know they had pyro! Anyways, I got done singing, shot a few photos, then ran to my dressing room to get a different camera lens. When I got back, Woggsy said “Christian just caught a blast of flame to the face!”- the wind was REALLY bad yesterday, & it blew the pyro right into Christian’s face- THANK GOD HE HAD HIS EYES CLOSED at that second! I looked at him & he was still playing, mostly with his eyes closed, obviously hurting & looking PISSED OFF. In between songs he walked over & asked for water & threw it on his face. Then he finished the set, & medics attended to him. He’s gonna be alright (except for some peeling & missing hair & eyebrows) but that was scary & it could have been really, really bad. Christian caught a full-on #DRACARYS to the face & still did his job. That is some HARD SHIT right there. @jameyjasta, you need to put him in the #HARDHALLOFFAME!!! Respect, Christian- you are one TOUGH MOTHERFUCKER. #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaM10P #LeicaM10Ptyp3656 # #Summilux #Summilux35mm #LeicaCraft #MyLeicaJourney #MKexplore #drandallblythe #RatsEyesPhotography #HoneTheAesthetic

Le musicien est d’ailleurs venu partager deux morceaux avec Gojira : « Backbone » de leur album de 2005 From Mars To Sirius, et sans surprise, “Adoration For None« sorti en 2008 sur The Way Of All Flesh, un morceau chanté par Randy Blythe en studio.
