At a show in Tulane, Dillion Francis was attacked by an enraged fan with an RC cola can. The incident left Dillon with an inch and half gash above his right eye. He was rushed to the emergency room to receive stitches and be checked for a concussion. Unfortunately, the incident had to cut the show short.
Dillon seems to be in good spirits according to his twitter feed. True to his nature, he is making a big laugh of the matter which makes us love him even more. Even Deadmau5 weighed in to give him some advice.
@DILLONFRANCIS dude! Mousehead… I'm telling you… They're lifesavers. Got one you can borrow!

What had initially sparked the incident is still unclear. Perhaps the fan didn’t like Dillon for some odd reason and decided to act? Who knows. This however begs the question: why would you attend the show in the first place if you didn’t like the artist? We wish Dillon a speedy recovery and look forward to having him in Seattle for Freaknight. Perhaps RC Cola will be the next item that gets put on the “banned” list for events….
