deadmau5 ‘nearly blows up’ crowdMay 11th, 2012 ⋅ News ⋅ by digilove staff
The mau5 took to Twitter today to offer some photo evidence of how he almost went up in flames:“Holy crap!!! Remember that explosion that nearly f’n killed me in NYC!?!? Now with pic!”
Canadian star Deadmau5 has narrowly avoided an on-stage incineration, following a bit of impromptu pyro in the booth at New York’s Provocateur nightspot. The mau5 was on a quick weekend club tour with his ‘Unhooked’ set-up which included New York, Chicago and his Las Vegas residency at XS.
According to The New York Post, the near-death-experience happened when the headliner set fire to an air-horn as he was working his new release The Veldt into the mix. Unsurprisingly, it went up in flames. “OMG I actually lived through that,” he wrote on Twitter. “Nearly blew up myself and a buncha people in the booth. Pyro’s a bitch.” The New York Post makes sure to note that the crowd present not only included normal people, but also precious celebrities too (model Hillary Rhoda and singer Ciara, apparently).
