Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel stormed off stage during a gig in Brussels, Belgium on Tuesday (29Nov11) after a fan threw a shoe at his head during the final song.
The heavy rockers were performing at the Vorst Nationaal and had almost completed their set when angry Demmel left the stage after a shoe struck him on the forehead as he tried to play his guitar.
In footage posted on, Demmel can be seen putting his instrument down and walking offstage.
Bandmates, including frontman Robb Flynn, seemed oblivious to the incident as they continued to rock the encore.
