Video: Matt Skiba completely f’ing chokes entire first Sekrets show, fans demand refund

So apparently Matt Skiba completely fucking blew his first show with Matt Skiba And The Sekrets in Chicago last night.  From the reports we’re seeing from fans he couldn’t even get through the band’s first single “Voices,” even after attempting it multiple times, forgetting lyrics and singing totally off key all night.

I almost didn’t believe the reports until I watched this video from the performance and saw it for myself.  Wow.

Some fans were reporting that he was too intoxicated or fucked up on drugs to sing but he claims to have been “pretty sober”.

I’ve never seen anything like this.  Amazing.  Skiba has been profusely apologizing all day via Twitter:

“I was pretty sober just couldn’t sing…killed my mojo. I’ll do my best to make it up to everyone.”

“Sorry to all who came to the Metro tonight and felt let down. It won’t happen again….thank you all.”

“I was nervous and had no voice. Terrible excuse but it’s the truth”

“Thanks for all the love. xo M so sorry to those I disappointed…I truly am. I would’t have a job without you. Thank you!”

    That’s almost too difficult to watch! I just saw Matt Skiba perform with Alkaline Trio in the spring and they sounded awesome of course. Wow, this is gut-wrenching.

    Anyone have the video backed up? It was taken down from youtube due to a “copyright claim”.

    Something’s up with this guy. I heard his set at Punk Rock Bowling was only like 5 or 6 songs and he was apologizing to Chuck Ragan a couple weeks ago for his actions at The Revival Tour.
