Fan Brings Dog to Motionless in White Show, Gets Admonished by Band’s Drummer

The post Fan Brings Dog to Motionless in White Show, Gets Admonished by Band’s Drummer appeared first on Consequence.

A fan thought it was a good idea to bring his dog to Motionless in White’s show this past Sunday (September 16th) in Scranton, Pennsylvania, but ended up getting berated by the metal band’s drummer on social media.

Video footage shows a guy holding his golden retriever on top of his shoulders in the middle of the pit during Motionless in White’s performance, and eventually making his way to the front barricade, just a few feet away from the stage.

Perhaps he was inspired by the husky who ran away from home and snuck into a Metallica show last month, but as Metallica stated at the time, “You definitely shouldn’t bring your furry friends” to metal concerts.

Motionless in White drummer Vinny Mauro echoed Metallica’s statement, commenting on X (formerly Twitter), “Seeing the dog in the pit at our Scranton show really bummed me out and I wanna go on record to say unless your dog is literally deaf and blind and somehow also loves to be held in the air for 3 hours, do not bring them to a show, headphones or not.”

Upon seeing the video, other people shared their concerns about the dog, as well, with one commenting, “The person who took the dog needs to be found and arrested for animal cruelty. And maybe given a good kicking.” Another remarked, “We watched the man walk the dog down to the pit earlier in the day and was shocked he was allowed to bring the dog down there, period. I was sad to see later that the dog was in the air and had no protection during sets


so awful and unfair.”

Dogs have much more sensitive hearing that humans, making loud noises even harsher on their ears. Even if the golden retriever was a service animal, it was probably not wise to bring the dog to the concert.

Motionless in White are in the midst of their headlining fall North American tour with support from Knocked Loose. Tickets to the remaining shows are available here — but just don’t bring your dog!
