There was a time when all Luke Bryan had to worry about when he got up onstage in front of thousands was the occasional fan trying to grab his butt.
But now, the country music superstar also has to worry about getting hit in the head with iPhones.
Yep, you read that right.
While it has almost become customary for Luke to grab a fan’s phone once or twice during the course of a show to take a selfie or read some of their texts, things went to a whole new — and much more strange— level during a recent show in Virginia Beach, Virginia, when fans in the audience began actually throwing their phones at him.
“There goes another damn phone,” Luke told the audience as one was tossed on the stage. That was followed by several more, some of which almost hit him in the head. “How much damn money are y’all making around here that are throwing iPhones up here? They are weapons, you assholes,” Luke joked.
Hopefully, the audiences coming up on his tour dates are a bit more respectful of Luke as he prepares for a weekend of shows come September 14-16 in Virginia, Indiana and Illinois, along with a very special show on September 22 in Houston, where he will donate concert proceeds to benefit hurricane victims via the Houston Community Fund.
