For the second time this week, an artist intervened after witnessing a fight in the audience. This time it was the country star Luke Bryan who called out to members of the public after witnessing a fight, berating them in front of the crowd saying, “It’s not Limp Bizkit or nothing. Friggin’ Gwar!”
Bryan spoke to the crowd about the incident which happened while he was performing his hit song “Buy Dirt.” He asked the crowd, “I mean, why the hell did y’all fight on ‘Buy Dirt’?” before joking, “It’s not Limp Bizkit or nothing. Friggin’ Gwar.”
Bryan’s choice of acts to call are interesting choices. Limp Bizkit wrote “break thingsand found themselves at the center of controversy during the Woodstock 99 riots. GWAR, on the other hand, is more on the cartoonish side of violence, often “eating up” or “killing” some of its fans on stage.
After dropping his joke on Limp Bizkit, the singer continued, “I know someone got knocked out, but I saw it. Relax. Find a joint or something, smoke a joint . I know you all have that shit,” before mockingly affecting a stoner voice.
Ending his speech, the singer told the crowd, “It’s my birthday night, no fighting on my birthday night!”
Bryan is currently touring the country as part of his “Raised Up Right” tour. Dates, cities, venues and ticketing information can be found here.

As noted, this is the second instance of a fight that breaks out on a show this week. The Cult’s Ian Astbury actually jumped off the concert stage into the crowd when he spotted a fan putting another in a chokehold during a performance.
