Suicidal Tendencies’ Free Concert Cut Short By LA Police

Jun 012017

A free concert by SUICIDAL TENDENCIES' in Los Angeles was cut short Sunday afternoon after police broke up the event. According to their drummer Dave Lombardo, the band "got to play four songs before the riot squad and helicopter aka Ghetto birds broke up the event,” apparently in response to the audience breaking through a security gate. This was unfortunate for both the band and the audience, as the concert was staged in collaboration with the unveiling of a mural of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES singer Mike Muir. Muir was being honored by council member José Huizar and Los Angeles-based artist Robert Vargas for his long-time dedication to Los Angeles street, skate and punk rock music culture. See Mike’s on stage speech below at 32:15 as the show gets broken up.

Located on Santa Fe Avenue in the Arts District, the Mike Muir mural is adjacent to the future 6th Street Bridge and park space. Councilmember Huizar negotiated with the City's Department of Cultural Affairs to work with Vargas, a prolific muralist whose work is displayed throughout the city, to paint a mural of Muir that complements redevelopment in the area.

SUICIDAL TENDENCIES' latest album, "World Gone Mad", was released last September following their 2013 disc "13". World Gone Mad was the band's first album to feature former SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo and guitarist Jeff Pogan, who replaced Nico Santora in May 2016. The band’s new makeup should pose no problem regarding their performances on their next tour in Europe, starting off strong THIS FRIDAY at the popular Download Festival.
