“I did not know it was this bad.”
One fan got more than they bargained for at a Justin Moore show on Saturday (28 October) in Melbourne, Florida.
Performing at the King Centre in Florida with special guests Priscilla Block and Noah Hicks, the You, Me & Whisky tour was going swimmingly until Moore, a veteran performer, experienced a wardrobe malfunction on stage.
The singer revealed that he split his pants following a performance of Theme from The Dukes of Hazzard (Good Ol’ Boys) by Waylon Jennings, in which he dropped to the ground while singing. After the song, he quickly departed the stage and returned wearing a new pair of jeans.
“Near two decades worth of playing music on stage,” Moore began when he returned to the stage, holding his ripped trousers.
Moore continued, “That is a first right there. I’m sorry for those of you who viewed something you did not want to see… I heard and felt a pop, and I knew it was bad.”
After showing off the large rip to the laughing crowd, Moore chuckled, “I did not know it was this bad.”

Revealing that his bandmates initially thought Moore shit his pants when he explained, “I went back to this microphone back here where we can talk to each other, and I go, ‘I just split my pants’”, Moore assured the audience: “I did not poop in my pants”.
To show how serious he was about that, he signed the pair of split jeans and had them given to a fan. You can watch the footage below.
On Instagram, a fan commented, “My daughter got your pants!!! Best night ever!! I’m having them framed! Thank you for splitting your pants!”
In August 2020, Moore topped the Billboard Country Airplay Chart with his hit single, Why We Drink. Previous hits from Moore include chart-toppers and movers Small Town USA, If Heaven Wasn't So Far, Till My Last Day, Lettin' The Night Roll, You Look Like I Need A Drink, and Somebody Else Will.
