Attila played the Hard Rock Live in Las Vegas, NV on August 22, 2018 and it didn't go well. The band's set was cut short after vocalist Chris Fronzak thought security was being too rough with fans, called them out on stage, and then hit one of the security guards.
At the time, Fronzak said "Man I wish y’all could see everything I saw from my point of view. Of course the videos only show me after I fucking snapped. The videos don’t show these abusive motherfuckers that were choking my fans and powerslamming them into the concrete…."
The Hard Rock Live responded at the time, saying they were "disappointed in the escalation of events at the Attila show last night," and that they believed "security acted in an appropriate way to protect the best interests of guests."
Now two of the security guards working that show, Patrick Anderson and Russell Miner, are suing Fronzak, guitarist Christopher Linck and bassist Kalan Blehm. According to Las Vegas Review-Journal, the duo states Attila were "lunging after, punching, attacking, kicking, throwing objects at, and/or striking" and alleges they suffered head and neck injuries that "may be permanent and disabling in nature." The lawsuit also takes aim at Hard Rock Live, saying they failed to provide a "safe premises" for the guards.
Fronzak has since responded on Twitter, saying he stands by what happened.
