John Macbeath worked as a rep for the promoters, SJM, and worked with Morrissey for many years. Here's his obituary in TPi:
He was extremely popular with many bands. The backstage bar at V Festival this year was renamed 'The Macbeath Suite' in his honour.
Did anyone sit in Block 113? Half way through meat is murder myself and people in the rows around me were soaked by someone who threw a pint of hot urine from above. Ruined my night. The months of waiting, the travel, hotel, food/drink and ticket costs all ruined by some thoughtless c*nt.
Sat through the rest of the songs trying to muster the mental strength to forget it happened, enjoy myself, all the while I had warm piss running down the back of neck and face. Im sick of the Morrissey 'fans' who attend gigs - always act like complete scumbags.
His last album was unlistenable, should have stayed at home.
Lol so to recap. It sounded rubbish. The song choice was terrible and some people got covered in warm piss!!
