After being hit in the head with a bottle at a recent showcase, Blue’s Antony Costa, had to be dragged away in order to prevent a brawl between himself and a Leeds youth.
Blue were set to play at Leeds University’s Summer Ball at Lotherton Hall, but fans became angry after the band arrived onstage much later than their fixed 12.30am timeslot. And so by the time, boyband Blue took to the stage and started performing, many fans were drunk which probably made everyone present feel like the band were merely miming away.
One observer said, speaking to the press “Everyone started to go like ‘boo!’ when they figured the band were just miming. That’s when the beer started getting thrown around plus the bottles as well, which definitely led to a bottle hitting Antony on the head.”
As soon as that occurred, Antony, 21, jumped into the crowd to confront the male fan, despite bandmate Simon Webbe’s efforts to pull him back onstage.
“He was shouting like a crazed fellah, ‘We’re Blue ok, why don’t you just f**k off if you don’t like us! You’re just jealous because your girlfriend wants to shag us instead!” added the observer.
The assailant was quickly removed from the grounds by security.
Afterwards, a spokesman for the band said “Yes. There was an incident involving a plastic bottle being thrown at Antony.”
I like the line you used, Antony, the part where you go ” -You’re just jealous because -“. Nice.
