The trend of having things thrown at artists during their performances has become a full-on epidemic, and Taylor Swift won’t tolerate it anymore. At his Eras Tour show in Buenos Aires, Argentina on November 12, the singer handled fans throwing things like a professional and asked them to stop in a very polite manner.
As seen in fan footage from the show, Swift sat at her woodsy piano during Evermore While acting and talking to the crowd a gift was thrown right onto the piano and landed behind him, causing him to make a request.
What did Swift say?
“Simply because communication is meant to have gentle, healthy boundaries,” she said. “I get really nervous when stuff gets thrown on stage. Because if it’s on the stage a dancer could slip on it.
Swift made sure to appreciate the attendees who brought her gifts, but she firmly stuck to her convictions. “I love that you bought gifts and that’s great, but can you please not throw them on the stage,” she asked. “I love you so much.”
Who else has thrown things?
It has become a dangerous trend for concert goers to throw things at singers on stage, resulting in many injuries. The first and most prominent incident occurred in June when Bebe Rexha was hit in the forehead with a phone, causing a tear to her eyebrow and requiring stitches to close the wound.
The following month, Kelsea Ballerini was hit in the eye by a bracelet, causing her to receive treatment offstage and address the crowd upon returning. “Don’t throw things. “Do you know?” He asked. Cardi B was sprayed with beverage during a performance in Las Vegas, causing her to launch her microphone into the crowd.
Although that didn’t happen to Adele, she made sure to warn fans what would happen if they threw something during her Las Vegas residency. “Have you noticed how people are forgetting show etiquette at the moment?” He asked.
“People are talking nonsense on stage. have you seen that? I’m challenging you – I dare you to throw something at me… These guys lost it, can you imagine?
Kelly Clarkson also asked fans not to throw anything at her — with one exception. He quipped, “If you want to throw dirt, throw diamonds.” Some gifts are just too good to resist.
