Watch Rob Halford Kick The Phone Out Of A Fan’s Hand At A Gig

Judas Priest leader Rob Halford booted a fan’s phone out of their hand because they were physically interfering” with the gig.

Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford kicked the phone out of a fan’s hand at a show in Rosemont, Illinois, because they were physically interfering” with the show.

A video of the incident shows The Metal God booting the device (really quite far) during the track Judas Rising, with attendees on the night saying that the camera’s flash was on, and therefore frustrating to Rob.

In a statement to Loudwire afterwards, Rob said: 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.”

Yep. Check out what went down (ironically, in a video filmed by a fan) below:
