Luke Bryan Breaks Up a Concert Fight, Tells Crowd to Keep it Cool
Luke Bryan is used to selling out concerts in minutes, he’s used to shaking it for crowds all over and he’s definitely used to No. 1 hits. But over the weekend, the singer took on a new role during one of his shows: fight referee.
During a show at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa on Friday (Oct. 25), the ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ singer completely stopped his performance to end a fight that had broken out in the crowd.
Bryan handed towels to patrons who were caught up in the mess, Tampa Bay radio station 103.5 reports, before taking matters into his own hands. The singer apologized to the crowd for stopping the show so abruptly before adding, “If anybody fights again, we’re gonna send your a– to jail, all right?”
He continued, “I know everybody’s drinking and having a good time, but we’ve got a lot of children in here, we got a lot of country girls in here, and we don’t need no dangnum redneck [inaudible] beating the s— out of one another.”
The Georgia boy isn’t the first to stop a show to break up a crowd fight. Tim McGraw and even Miranda Lambert have also been known to handle the occasional rowdy crowd, while Chris Young got a collective pat on the back from fans for kicking a man out of a show after he pushed a woman.
Lesson learned: Bryan don’t take no mess from nobody.
