Drake Is Latest Artist Hit With Thrown Object During Concert

Business

Continuing the recent trend of artists being assaulted by thrown objects while on stage, Drake has become the latest victim.

The Canadian singer-rapper was hit on the left wrist Wednesday night in Chicago while performing the song “So Anxious.” Drake looked at the phone on the ground, but didn’t indicate that he was injured or particularly annoyed, and carried on with the show, part of his “It’s All a Blur” tour.

He became the latest victim in a disturbing trend of fans throwing objects at the stage in an order to get a clickable video moment. Artists including Bebe Rexha, Pink, Kid Cudi, Steve Lacy Kelsea Ballerini and Ava Max have been victimized. And singer Adele recently warned from the stage that she would fight anyone who threw anything at her.

Rexha has been the most serious injury, with a thrown phone hitting her near her eye, causing her to collapse on stage. A 27-year-old man was arrested.

Ballerini stopped her show in Idaho to address her audience after an object was thrown.

“Can we just talk about what happened?” she asked. “All I care about is keeping everyone safe. If you ever don’t feel safe, please let someone around you know. If anyone’s pushing too much or you just have that gut feeling, just always flag it. … Don’t throw things, you know?”

Adele has had the strongest reaction. She told her audience this week, ““Have you noticed how people are like, forgetting show etiquette at the moment? People just throwing s— onstage, have you seen them? I f— dare you. Dare you to throw something at me and I’ll f— kill you.”
