Gojira guitarist Christian Andreu is a god-damned trooper. Christian was burned in the face by pyro during the band's performance at Sonic Temple Festival this past Saturday, May 18th.
There were strong winds during the day, and especially during the band's performance. Loudwire reports that Christian could be seen telling techs to cut the pyro up front but as the video below shows, the message wasn't exactly received properly:
As soon as the song ended, frontman Joe Duplantier asked into the microphone “Did he get burned?” But Christian returned and finished the final four songs of the band's set like a boss, stopping occasionally to pour some water on his face.
Update: Lamb of God's Randy Blythe captured some photos of Christian's burns:
We hope he's okay, but it looks like he performed just fine with the band the following day at Chicago Open Air.
