Aaron Lewis isn't afraid to let people know how he feels about them, that's for sure. While performing in OKC on Saturday, he played a mostly acoustic show over what was described as a very loud and somewhat unruly crowd. Things all came to a head late in his performance when he told audience members that he didn't have to be there. He gave it one final shot before ultimately slamming down his guitar, throwing his drink at the crowd and exiting the stage. This isn't the first time that this type of thing has happened, either. He ended a concert early in Texas last month after fans refused to remain quiet during a specific portion of the concert. He also called out a heckler in December for shouting out the name of a song that was different than the one he was currently performing.
People have been quick to bash Lewis for going after his audience members, but I can certainly understand his frustration. While some may argue that the audience has a right to whatever they want for buying a ticket, it isn't fair to completely disrespect an artist that is trying to provide entertainment for them. He has 6 dates left on this current tour, and he will release his third country solo record in April.
