DuringJudas Priest's concert at the Rosemont Theatre in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Ill., earlier this week, frontmanRob Halfordkicked a phone out of the hands of a fan in the front row. It's the latest in a series of high-profile incidents where acts have had issues with concertgoers filming portions of the show.
The moment happened during "Judas Rising," the sixth song of the set and, as you can see in the video below, Halford deliberately singles out this fan, even though there are plenty of other people holding up their phones in the front row (to say nothing of the one that shot the video). Our sister site Loudwire notes that some YouTube commenters suggested that the fan was shining the light from his phone on Halford. They reached out to the singer, who didn't specify what caused him to punt the phone, but said he mostly had no problem with fans recording the show.
