A Big No, No
Fans pay good money to see their favorites put on a show. More than that, hip-hop concert-goers always intend to get their money’s worth. With this in mind, hip-hop concerts can get crazy. A fan brought new meaning to this statement after he jumped on Post Malone’s stage with the star.
The fan, whose identity has not been revealed, was quickly (and forcefully) removed from the stage. Meanwhile, Malone looked totally unbothered.
While performing in Australia, the “Rockstar” artist took a moment to channel his inner rockstar as he smashed a white guitar, a signature part of his shows. The crowd cheered Malone on as he sluggishly slammed the instrument onto the stage a good two times. Then, a zealous concert-goer distracted everyone by hopping on stage alongside the star.
Sporting an outfit that almost matched the star’s, the stage-crasher quickly approached and grabbed Malone. Using both hands, the fan stood behind him and got hold of Malone’s left shoulder and right arm.
Whether the culprit was trying to do harm or not is unclear. Either way, the artist didn’t seem too worried about it. By the time he even looked over to see his new company, security guards had grabbed the man and choked him before hauling him away. Slightly slumped over, Malone took a drag of his cigarette and continued the show.
Live & Ready
Where was Malone when Travis Scott taught everyone to let hip-hop fans live? In September of last year, the Rodeo rapper checked security guards for trying to forcefully remove a fan who had jumped on his stage. In fact, he paused the whole concert to do so.
While performing an a cappella version of his hit “Goosebumps,” an enthusiastic fan climbed on the side stage and began jumping up and down. He didn’t get to celebrate for long, as security grabbed him by the ankles, yanked him off his feet and dragged him from the stage. Travis noticed the manhandling and stopped the show to give security a scolding.
“Hold on, hold on, hold on,” he said, halting the clapping fans before turning to the security guards. “Don’t ever touch my fans like that. He know what he trying to do. We know what he trying to do.”
“Let him go,” Scott added.
