A woman who attended a Six60 concert on Saturday walked away with more than a rock 'n' Roll memory.

Alexandria Winning was stuck in the head by a drum stick when it was thrown into the sold out crowd at Villa Maria.

Fortunately the Six60 fan was not afraid to laugh at herself, posting a photo of the red lump on her forehead to the band's Facebook page on Sunday.

The message featured multiple smiley face emoji's and the caption: "cheers for the drum stick to the forehead last night boys."

She didn't let a bit of bruising ruin her fun either, later commenting that everything about the show was "killer".

The original message has more than 15,000 'likes' and was shared 34 times.

Winning's post prompted other commenters to share their drum stick memories.

Holly Jahkaia Kingi added: "Lol Katchafire got my partner in between the eyes too".

Throwing guitar picks and drum sticks to the audience as a keepsake is a tradition that's carried out by many bands throughout the world.
