Brass Against Sophia Urista apologizes for urinating on fans’ faces during the live show
Brass Against Sophia Urista has issued an apology for urinating on a fan during a live performance at the Welcome to Rockville Festival in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The band, known for covering bands like Soundgarden and Black Sabbath, were performing “Wake Up” by Rage Against the Machine when the accident happened.
After inviting a fan on stage, 36-year-old Oresta ordered him to lie down. Then she proceeded to take off her pants and it looked like she was peeing all over his face while she was still performing the song.
“Hello everyone. I want to talk about my performance at the Rockville Metal Festival in Daytona,” the singer said in a statement on Twitter. “I have always pushed boundaries in music and on stage. That night, I crossed the line.”
She continued, “I love my family, the band, and the fans more than anything and I know some were hurt or offended by what I did. I apologize to them and want them to know that I didn’t mean to hurt them.”
Urista ended by saying that she is “not a shocking artist” and “always wanted to put music first.”
“I am grateful for all your continued love and support,” she concluded.
Those who attended the show in Daytona Beach, and people watching the clips online, described the moment as “disgusting.”
Brass v. also issued an apology for the stunt last week, claiming that Urista had “drifted too far”.
“We had a great time last night at Welcome to Rockville,” they said in a Twitter post.
“Sophia was swept away. This is not something the rest of us expected, and not something you will see again at our shows. Thanks for bringing her last night, Daytona.”
