The Cult Singer Explains Confrontation With Fan (A Top Story)


.
On Friday The Cult Singer Explains Confrontation With Fan was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Last week, Ian Astbury of The Cult stopped the band's show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to address a fan who was filming and texting during the concert, and now the singer is explaining his side of the story in a new interview.

"Initially the guy was filming the whole show — he was filming everything," Astbury tells Vanyaland.com. "When you've got someone visualizing the show through a cell phone, that action spreads out through the crowd. And this genius, first of all, I politely asked him to stop filming; I don't mind if you take pictures, that's cool, filming little bits – but don't film the entire set; enough's enough. At first I was kind of amused, but the next thing, he's texting during a song. That's incredibly disruptive, watching people in the front row so disconnected from the process — not even present. You might as well stay at home."

"I commented to this guy, 'Will you please stop texting?' He didn't pay attention," Astbury explained. "I had water in my mouth, I sprayed it right next to him, and he just exploded — exploded; trying to climb over the barriers, trying to get into a fight with me, he's flipping me off, he's screaming at me, 'F**k you…' And I was just like, 'You're rude. This is our house, you're behaving disrespectfully, you're disruptive, you're affecting the functioning of the whole evening, and you're disconnected — so why bother coming?'" - More.
