Mgmt Drummer Quits Gig After Urine Attack

Rockers MGMT have become the latest act to end a gig early because of a missile attack - drummer WILL BERMAN stormed offstage at the band's Manchester, England show on Sunday night (26Sep10) after he was hit in the torso by a glass of urine.
The group was midway through hit song The Handshake towards the end of its set at the Manchester Apollo when the incident happened, prompting angry Berman to stop drumming and walk off.
Even his bandmates were unaware of what had happened. They had to ask fans, "Where's Will gone?"
The group was forced to end their show without a drummer. They did not return for an encore.
Guns N' Roses and Kings of Leon both halted shows this summer (10) after being hit by missiles - Guns N' Roses were bottled offstage during a show in Dublin, Ireland and Kings of Leon had to end a show in St. Louis, Missouri in July after they became targets for pooping pigeons.
