Morgan Wallen doesn’t put up with hooliganism at his shows (and nor should he).
US country music superstar Morgan Wallen doesn’t put up with hooliganism at his shows, making his stance clear at a recent Melbourne gig.
Wallen performed at Rod Laver Arena on Friday, 24 and Saturday, 25 March, with the incident taking place on the second show.
While he was performing a new song, Everything I Love, from his most recent album, One Thing At A Time, one fan thought it would be funny to throw a cup of beer and douse the Dying Man singer in liquid.
Wallen was not amused - addressing the perpetrators in a video below, he says, “One of y'all own up to it, or I'm gonna throw your whole fucking group out.” After finding the person responsible, Wallen ordered the individual to be escorted from the show.
As the below TikTok shows, once the perpetrator threw the beer at Wallen, he initially didn’t say anything - he shot a group of people a look and continued singing Everything I Love.
Check out the footage below. Wallen actually handled himself very well, considering the rudeness of the incident.
After debuting at #4 upon release (3 March) and spending three weeks in the ARIA Albums Chart, One Thing At A Time made it to #1 last week, just in time for his Australian tour.
Wallen’s monolith new 36-track album features collaborations with Eric Church (Man Made A Bar), HARDY (In the Bible), and ERNEST (Cowgirls).
While in Melbourne, Wallen performed Flower Shops by ERNEST, and He Went To Jared by HARDY, as well as a cover of Cover Me Up by Jason Isbell.
To celebrate his new album, Wallen recently returned to his former high school in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Lucky students, faculty members and locals gathered on the school’s baseball field and enjoyed a surprised and unannounced pop-up concert from Wallen, which featured several songs from his new album and many of his country radio hits, such as Thought You Should Know, You Proof and More Than My Hometown.
