You’d think with the number of artists and groups calling out or banning the use of cellphones at concerts that people would get the message by now. Apparently not. During a recent Judas Priest concert, the band were performing their song Judas Rising at the Rosemont Theatre in Illinois last Saturday when frontman Rob Halford noticed somebody in the front row with their phone out filming the concert.
Sure, he could’ve stopped the show and made everybody wait while people put their phones away, but why punish others for the stupidity of a few? So, rather than make everybody else suffer for one person’s ignorance, he simply walked up to the person mid-performance and kicked the phone out of his hand, sending it flying.
