An incident marred a performer’s concert and it was caught on video.
Rapper Future was in the thick of performing one of his hits in a concert when someone from the crowd bum-rushed onstage. The gutsy but reckless concert-goer did not get away with the rude intrusion as concert security tossed him back into the crowd. A melee erupted afterwards.
The incident took place at Future’s concert last Friday at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex in Alabama. The rapper was in the middle of his performance for his hit song “wicked“ when an overeager fan went uninvited on the concert stage.
After security got the fan off the stage, he started fighting them once he was back on the floor. The security then tossed him back onto the crowd. The crowd, turns out, was pretty pissed off with the overeager fan as well, and decided to give him a beating. The melee was caught on video.
Future just kept performing all through-out the fight happening on the floor. Arena security and off-duty cops have to step in to cut off the fight. Reports from TMZ say some affected by the melee were given emergency treatment. The police also took statements from some fight participants and spectators but it is unclear if any arrests were made.
“Wicked” is one of Future’s biggest songs of the last few years. The Atlanta rapper is in the middle of a busy tour dubbed Future HNDRXX, with special guests set to include Ty Dolla Sign, Post Malone, Zoey Dollaz, ASAP Ferg, YFN Lucci, Lil Yachty and Rich The Kid.
Future emerged on the music scene as a genuine emo rapper. He debuted with 2012 record “Pluto.” He is on his sixth self-titled studio album this year. Some of his greatest hits include “Jumpman”, “March Madness”, “[email protected] Up Some Commas”, “News or Somethn”, “Blow a Bag”, and many others.
The incident in his concert last week shows and teaches two things: One, that Future, can stay incredibly focused with his performance no matter the goings-on with his audience, fight included. Second, for fans and concert-watchers, bum-rushing onstage is never cool and may not end up well. The rush and the high from it just ain’t worth the trouble of getting beaten up for a few seconds of fame- or infamy- onstage with a performer.
