Yesterday (30th), footage surfaced online of Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford kicking a phone out of a fan’s hand during their show on May 25th in Rosemont, Illinois. While Halford isn’t the first person who has taken some sort of action against mobile devices at shows, the Metal God’s reason is because the fan “physically interfered” with his performance. Blabbermouth has reported that there were “eyewitness accounts” revealing the fan had a flash on his phone while filming the show. The light on the phone made things difficult for Halford to focus as his frustration built leading him to kick the device out of the concertgoer’s hand during “Judas Rising.”

Halford has addressed this incident to Loudwire as well as Facebook, stating:

“The facts are we love our fans and you can film us all you like and watch our show on your phone rather than in the flesh – however if you physically interfere with the Metal God’s performance you now know what will happen……..”
