Over the years, fans have displayed their fervent support for their favourite artists. Unfortunately, there have been instances where overenthusiastic fans have thrown items onto the stage during performances, often failing to realise how dangerous and disrespectful this behaviour can be. During a recent Jonas Brothers’ performance in Sacramento, California, Nick Jonas had a similar experience while he was energetically singing Rollercoaster on stage. As Nick passionately sang, an overly enthusiastic fan threw a bracelet in his direction, catching him off guard. Despite the disruption, Nick maintained his professionalism and continued singing. However, the situation escalated when another fan also threw a bracelet towards him. Attempting to persevere with the performance, the singer had to eventually halt and firmly address the situation. While looking towards the fan responsible, he sternly said, “No. Stop.”
The incident at The Tour quickly caught people’s attention on social media as a video capturing the moment went viral. In the video, the Camp Rock star can be seen making an effort to catch some of the items thrown his way. However, after a few initial attempts, he looked visibly annoyed and shook his head in disbelief, urging them to put an end to it.
The dangerous trend of throwing items onstage at performers has increased in recent years. In June, pop sensation Bebe Rexha fell victim to this trend when she was struck in the face after a fan threw a mobile phone during a concert in New York. The impact left her with a visible bruise above her left eye and she was immediately rushed to the hospital.
In the following month, a similar happened with Harry Styles during a concert in Vienna. An unidentified object struck him in the face while he was on stage, causing him to momentarily pause singing. On the other hand, Adele during a recent performance bravely addressed the issue, expressing her frustration with the lack of show etiquette and the trend of people throwing objects onstage. Calling out this behaviour, the Easy On Me singer stated, “Have you noticed how people are, like, forgetting fu****g show etiquette at the moment, people are throwing s*it on stage? Have you seen that? Fu****g dare you. I dare you to throw something at me.”
The Jonas Brothers have been making waves on their Five Albums. One Night. The World Tour, which began in August with a grand performance at Yankee Stadium in New York City. They’re set to cover various cities in the United States and will conclude their US leg in Brooklyn on December 9. Following a break, the brothers will gear up for an international tour that will take them to countries like Australia, Denmark, New Zealand, Norway, Germany, Spain, and many more.
