Azealia Banks Cuts Show Short Due To Flying CanBy: Amanda Crum - October 7, 2013
Azealia Banks cut short another festival performance on Saturday after she was pelted with a can onstage, leaving before the first song of the set was even finished. It was the second time in a week she’s disappointed Australian audiences.
Banks was about 90 seconds into her song “ATM Jam” when the projectile was thrown at the Listen Out Festival in the Royal Botanic Gardens. Later, the 22-year old singer tweeted an apology to fans, saying she would still perform in Brisbane on Sunday. However, Melbourne attendees took to Twitter to complain about the short set, saying they wanted a refund for the $132 tickets.
Banks can be seen in the video below storming offstage immediately after the can was thrown, shutting down the performance.
“The incident made Azealia and her stage crew feel unsafe,” her reps said in a statement.
The singer had a similar incident last week in Sydney, when a full can of beer was thrown onstage.
