Can people stop throwing stuff at performers on stage?
Truly, what do you think is going to happen? They’re going to pause the entire concert, pull out a marker, sign it, then return it to you and pick up where they left off?
Earlier this year, Morgan Wallen stuck around after a concert in St. Louis to sign autographs for fans that stayed to wait for him, which is obviously a cool thing to do, but someone in the back got a bit frustrated that they couldn’t get close and chose to chuck one of their boots at him to try and speed up the process.
As you can imagine, he didn’t take it so well and in turn threw the boot again, in the opposite direction, far away from where it came…
Gotta applaud him for that one, could have easily clocked him in the head and caused a cut or worse.
We’ve also seen other artists get items thrown at them onstage, like Kelsea Ballerini and Bebe Rexha, and P!nk even had someone throw their mother’s ashes on stage (which is certifiably insane), and although we tend to celebrate bras being thrown on stage(I mean, you’ve got to have some exceptions, right?) in general, it’s just a bad idea.
And over the weekend Morgan Wallen played a show at Truist Park in Atlanta and again some fan decided to toss something at him, this time while he was performing “Wasted On You.”
Well, this time someone decided to toss their cowboy hat at Morgan while he was sitting down on the stage’s edge, and while I don’t condone it, I will admit it was a pretty good throw, I mean that thing landed squarely in his lap, which I assume is exactly where they were hoping for it to go.
But as you may expect, Morgan didn’t take the quality of the throw into consideration, picked up the hat, and wired it into the crowd opposite of where it came. I would expect that thing had some carry to it and would love to see Wallen get on a Frisbee Golf course and test out his driving skills. That was a solid flick of the wrist.
Safe to say, this is yet another example of why people need to stop throwing things on stage. Not only does it piss off the performer, but you’re more than likely never going to see it again…
