Rioters torch drum kit

Evanescence's drummer Will Hunt has slammed fans who destroyed the band's equipment after they were forced to cancel a gig at Mexico's Knotfest event.

The group were due to perform at the festival in Mexico City on Saturday, but both they and Slipknot were forced to cancel their sets due to a broken safety barricade.

Videos posted on Twitter showed that after hearing news of the cancellation, furious fans stormed the stage and took away equipment, including drummer Will Hunt's kit, which was set on fire.

Will condemned those responsible in a lengthy Instagram rant, calling those responsible "F***ING MORONS" for torching a drum kit that "meant the world" to him. He also called them "weak and stupid" and failing to even execute a proper riot.

Frontwoman Amy Lee also jokingly tweeted that the incident could be used to promote their latest single, The Chain.

"Now I find myself wondering if we need a flaming drum kit in The Chain video," she wrote.
