Sex Scandal At Slipknot Show
The festival, headlined by Slipknot with the Dillinger Escape Plan supporting, was also host to local band The Cumshots, fronted by local radio ‘shock jock’ Kristopher Schau. Towards the end of their set 28 year old Tommy Hol Ellingsen and his 21-year-old girlfriend Leona Johansson jumped onstage, took their clothes off and started having sex. Estimates of the duration of the act ranged from three to 10 minutes.
They then walked offstage to rapturous applause and ran naked down to the sea before local TV and press surrounded them.
They told Metal Hammer that they did it to publicise a website where people would pay to watch them having sex once a month with all proceeds going to save the rainforests.
Festival organisers were furious having already evicted a video artist from the site who had planned to set up a tent to film people having sex on the festival site.
“This is an all ages show,” an organiser told Metal Hammer. “There are children present. Sure it was funny but maybe a bit irresponsible.”
But a defiant Kristopher Schau – whose previous stunts involved calling up Alan Shearer for his radio show and asking him what he did with his penis after urinating (Shearer refused to answer after asking him to repeat the question three times) – told us that the average age at the festival was 15 and that 95 per cent of the people there had had sex.
The police issued an on-the-spot fine to the couple.
“That’s it,” Slipknot’s Corey Taylor told Metal Hammer. “Joey and Clown are gonna have to do it during our set!”
