Jerry Cantrell reveals the incident:
“There was one particular time I think it was the Red Rocks, and you know you played at the venue. So you know the seats go up at such an angle that if you catch some air, it’s definitely go for 30 minutes or 25 minutes however long we played. It was just raining debris and we would throw stuff back, we’d jump the barricade and we’d spit and kick right back, and battled the crowd for about half of it. It was kinda fun doing that.”
