During Mr. Bungle’s first show back together in 20 years, frontman Mike Patton ended up receiving quite the surprise. During the show, fans threw the ashes of their recently deceased friend onstage at Mr. Bungle and onto Patton, according to Metal Sucks.
The ashes were of Dakota Young, a recently deceased metal fan who had already bought tickets to the Mr. Bungle February 11th reunion show in Brooklyn, New York, with his friends. The friends took it upon themselves to hurl their Young’s remains onstage during the performance, and although the ashes were mopped up after the show, one can only hope Dakota Young’s love of music may serve as an inspiration for others.
Mr. Bungle originally formed back in 1985, though the band played their final concert in September of 2000. Nearly 20 years later on February 6th, 2020, Mr. Bungle joined forces once more to play their first show in 20 years. The band played at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, California where they played their 1986 work The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny, from start to finish.
Check out fan footage of the incident below:
