Concerts

Here are three weird things that happened at concerts recently

When you buy a ticket to a show, there’s an understanding that things can turn very, very weird.

1. Kanye West’s Replacement at the Rolling Loud Festival was bottled off the stage.

On Friday night (July 22), Kid Cudi, filling in for Kanye West at the Rolling Loud Festival, lasted a couple of songs before some water bottles forced him to retreat.

2. Kid Rock Canceled a Show and His Audience Didn’t Take It Well

They got pretty annoyed in Minot, North Dakota when Kid Rock’s show was called off because of weather concerns. When the word came down, the 18,000 people at the state fair were pretty drunk. Naturally, they stormed the stage. (Note: This also might have been due to the fact that Night Ranger had just played a two-and-a-half hour set. That would do it for me.)

3. Lady Gaga was Apparently Protected by an Invisible Force Field

At her Chromatica Ball, someone threw something at Gaga. It didn’t reach the target because apparently her shields were up.
