According to Musica Metal, EPICA singer Simone Simons was hit in the face by a flying drumstick that slipped out of drummer Ariën van Weesenbeek‘s hands during the opening song of the band’s April 17 concert at Alcatraz in Milan, Italy. Simone briefly left the stage to regain her composure before returning a few moments later to finish singing the track “Monopoly On Truth” with no problems and no apparent injuries.
Two separate fan-filmed video clips of the incident can be seen below.
Photos of the show are available on Musica Metal.

02. Monopoly On Truth
