Street preacher Buddy Fisher went to the Widespread Panic concert last night at the Time-Warner Center in Charlotte, but he wasn’t looking to watch Jimmy Herring tear up Tall Boy. Fisher’s aim was to show “the light” to concert attendees by preaching outside of the venue. The street preacher and his co-hort Jeremiah kept those lining up to enter the venue entertained by trying to “save” then.
Fisher didn’t hold back in condemning the Spreadnecks’ behavior. He yelled such gems as “I’m getting tipsy from the vapors coming from you mouth,” “your saliva is getting me drunk,” “I’m warning you that alcohol is flammable, if you get thrown into hell with a belly full of Jack Daniels you’ll go up in flames pretty fast,” “you’re not my brother, you’re a child of the devil,” “it’s not even 8:30 and you guys are already wasted and violent…I can’t even imagine what you guys will be like at midnight (crowd cheers),” “I think there’s some women who are going to sleep with some men who otherwise they would never sleep with (crowd goes wild),” as well as our personal favorite “that woman who you never met before tonight, who was drunk and stupid enough to sleep with you, most likely has an STD. You are most likely playing Russian roulette with your genitalia.”
As you can imagine, some of the “drunker revelers” had no qualms confronting Fisher and while a handful argued with him others mocked him. A few even tried to derail Fisher’s efforts, though it doesn’t appear anyone got violent despite the preacher’s claims otherwise.
