Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard is “okay” despite being stung by a scorpion before his show on Wednesday in San Diego.
“As we were getting ready to go onstage to play our set,” band mate Nick Harmer wrote online, “Ben changed into his show pants that were hanging in our wardrobe case. He put his pants on, and felt something stick him twice in his thigh and when he pulled them off, this [scorpion] came running out.”
Gibbard toughed it out and the show did go on.
“[Ben] said he had scorpion power in his veins,” joked Harmer.
The popular indie band has canceled their next 4 tour dates.
