    At Sunday's AC/DC concert, I saw 4 things tossed across the stage. I'd have been pissed had someone interrupted the concert.

    From the comments section:

    Years ago, I attended a rather boisterous Jane's Addiction show in which a number of items were thrown on stage. Perry Farrell, reaching the limit of his frustration, advised the crowd that the next projectile would be the last, as the show would be over.

    Two minutes later, a water bottle sailed onto the stage. Perry cued the band to stop and announced, "Show's over. Any complaints -- you can talk to that guy," pointing out the "fan" who launched the bottle. The band left the stage, and the fan got to meet a number of upset fans.

    I hate that crap!
    I've been to a few concerts where this has happened and once the lead singer said pretty much the same thing - "throw more crap at me and I'm done, Panties and bras are ok but that other crap better stay off my stage" (Tom Petty)
    Man I'm jealous been a long time since I saw AC/DC hope it was a good show!

    Was at a Heart concert a few years ago and some ass climbed onstage and tried to give Ann Wilson a beer. Next thing he knew, he was facedown with 2 BIG cops on him. He went out in cuffs, and the roadies zoomed in with towels to mop up the beer. The band didn't miss a note.

    I was at a REHAB show in Ft. Worth a few years ago and this guy kept climbing on the stage and finally he was "escorted" out by the bouncers and the band kept on going. I also got to see a women tackled at a George Straight concert at the rodeo one year a long time ago. But the performer should have pointed out that guy and said thank him/her and then walked off stage.

    Did security at Ozz Fest in SoCal right after I got back from Iraq in '03. I worked the "line" right between the pit and the stage... I have stories for days about those 13 hours!

    I've seen Alabama (twice), The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Oakridge Boys and not once did anyone throw anything on the stage or try to jump up there :lolz:

    I did security for the Classic Rock Allstars concert years ago in IL, one guy tried to jump up on the stage, he missed, that was funny

    The Offspring and Rancid concerts had alot more sh@t happening, stage diving (one person broke their neck), crap being thrown, drug deals in the corners, people trying to start a mosh pit with the country guy (me who only went cuz his friends had an extra ticket), after being elbowed twice I elbowed back, when he got up he stopped tryin to mosh :devil:
