NOFX‘s frontman Fat Mike punched and kicked a fan in face at a gig in Sydney on Tuesday night (November 4).
Alex Medak invaded the stage and attempted to put his arm around the frontman, which resulted in Mike attacking the fan, causing Medak to fall to the floor. Watch footage of the incident above. The fan then tweeted at the singer, offering an apology. He wrote: “@FatMike_of_NOFX thanks for the KO mike, didn’t hurt too much. Soz for creepin up on you like, punk shows are a bit different down here”.
Mike responded on the social network, also apologising. “I’m sorry too Alex, I was in terrible pain all night. When you grabbed me by the neck I defensively reacted… offensively,” said the punk frontman, before promising he would buy Medak a beer if he saw him at another of the band’s shows, writing:
Alex, if you go to the show on friday I'll buy you a beer. Just don't throw it at me alright?

After writing that he couldn’t afford to go to another of their gigs, NOFX’s tour manager Stephen Garrett got in contact with Medak, telling him he would put him on the guestlist for the show. Medak went on to draw a line under the incident, writing: “I’m sure he feels terrible, and so do I. It’s the past now for both of us, and the public needs to stop worrying as well”.
