Sometimes when you attend a live, bad things happen and someone can get hurt.
Usually it’s just not the bandguys.
Merry’s bassist, Tetsu, was involved in an incident at the band’s live on 10/12 at Okayama CRAZYMAMA KINGDOM, where Tetsu was pulled into the crowd and injured. The details are currently fuzzy, but Tetsu was rushed to the hospital and has been pulled from the remainder of the band’s planned event lives for the “Freaks Addict Tour beyond.”
The news broke yesterday night and was announced on the band’s OHP almost immediately after the incident.

As many fans know, getting hurt at a live isn’t all that uncommon, but usually it is only the fans getting hurt. It is important to remember that you should be courteous at all lives, not only to your fellow fans, but the musicians as well. Thankfully, it is expected that Tetsu will make a full recovery but we will update fans when more on the story progresses.
