During a live performance in Vienna, Harry Styles was hit in the face by an object that was thrown at him. Videos shared online from the concert show the British singer walking on stage when the item hits him near the eye.
Styles visibly winces in pain and covers his face with his hands. According to a fan named Myriam from Germany, the incident occurred after Styles performed his song Sign Of The Times at the beginning of the encore.
He still kept touching his face a lot. It looked like it hurt very much. It seems like he had to collect himself and then he turned back to us and kept performing, she said.
The fan expressed that witnessing the incident just a few meters away greatly shook her and she hopes it never happens to Harry Styles again, as it has occurred too many times already. This incident follows a previous incident where Styles was hit by a bunch of flowers during a concert in Cardiff.
Recently, there has been attention on fans throwing objects at musicians during their performances, which can cause harm. Another pop star, Bebe Rexha was hit in the face by a mobile phone while performing in New York last month.
Just a few weeks ago, while country singer Kelsea Ballerini was performing in Idaho, someone threw something onto the stage, leading her to pause the show temporarily.
At a recent Las Vegas show, Adele had a message for her audience: Have you noticed how people are like, forgetting fucking show etiquette at the moment? People just throwing shit onstage, have you seen them? I fucking dare you. Dare you to throw something at me and I’ll fucking kill you.
