Avenged Sevenfold had to pause their show at the Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center in Pikeville, Kentucky Tuesday night when the curtains at the top of the stage caught fire. The blaze — caused by the band’s pyrotechnics — was quickly put out and no one was injured.

In a video posted by a fan singer M. Shadows tells the crowd, “I guess that’s what happens when we try and blow everything up.” After some fans start chanting “burn it down,” Shadows says, “Are you guys really chanting burn it down? Because if we burn it down, you go with it.”

Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin has filed for divorce from his wife Jessica Nicole Scantlin. TMZ reports that Wes filed the divorce papers in Los Angeles Tuesday afternoon. The couple had been married for three years.  If TMZ is right, Wes must have been conducting that business from right here in Missoula because they played The Wilma on Tuesday night.  Guess the Missoula chicks were just too hot for Wes to handle.
