Sturgill Simpson Applauds Man Who Did The Worm Across the Stage: “Dare I say, EPIC

September 23, 2017


Getting the liquid courage to jump on stage at a rock concert is a level that stands entirely alone, but to get on stage and bust out the worm is going to another galaxy. 

That's what happened the other night at Sturgill Simpson's show in St. Louis and, as Simpson retells it, he didn't completely ruin the show. 

In an Instagram post, Simpson apologizes to the "dude that busted out the worm across the entirety of the stage" in St. Louis. "We are very sorry security escorted you out. Simpson says that he instructs security to only remove people for fighting. "Had I known you were being booted I would have stopped them."

As for this gentleman's worm technique (Simpson believes he was a member of the military and they met earlier in the night), it was reportedly "highly advanced" and "dare I say EPIC." Simpson added he is "welcome back anytime" although this is not an invitation for any and all to bust out the worm on stage. "Nobody wants to see a weak worm get busted out in front of a sold out theater."

Read Simpson's full thoughts below. 

To the dude that busted out the worm across the entirety of the stage tonight in St Louis, we are very sorry security escorted you out. We don't normally (actually we instruct house security not to) remove people from shows for any reason other than fighting. Had I known you were being booted I would have stopped them. Im pretty sure you were one of the military dudes I met pre-show and your worm was highly advanced, dare I say EPIC sir, and you are welcome back anytime. Hats off brother!!! However with that said, this is not an open invitation to all to worm..but should any of you choose to worm across the stage at my show you better bring that shit. Nobody wants to see a weak worm get busted out in front of a sold out theater...jus sayin.
