Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan Try to Save Drunk Fan From Being Kicked Out of Concert
At Saturday night’s Jason Aldean My Kinda Party Tour show in Champaign, Ill., one fan was trying to have his own kinda party — but he wasn’t able to stay in the audience long enough to see it to a good close. With Aldean at the back of the University of Illinois assembly hall to join Luke Bryan on an acoustic set, the drunken fan began losing his cool, which is visualized in the video below. Country radio station B104 was in attendance at the show and came back with the juicy details.
Obviously enjoying himself a bit too much, the fan stepped out onto a ledge that dropped about 10 feet to where Aldean and Bryan were performing. At first, it seems he just sort of danced around on the ledge, and when security finally came to take him out, the country stars tried to vouch for him by insisting that he was just having a good time.
“Hold on, don’t throw that man out … Don’t hurt him, he’s in the spirit!” Bryan says in the video. The pair then stopped their song to reach up for the fan, who at this point was clumsily throwing out his arms to them while being held back by security. Still seeing him as a fan who was just a little too inebriated, Aldean said, “I like your spirit.” Then, trying to reason with him and keep him in the show, he added, “Go grab a beer and get back in your seat.”
Seeing that the man is perhaps too far gone to reason with, Bryan gave it another shot. “Look at me brother, look at me.” When the man didn’t, he said again, “Hey … Hey you, chill out.” Still, the man was completely out of his wits and as the security guard squatted down to pick the young guy up like a kid, Bryan confirmed what everyone (except perhaps the drunk) already knew: “You are about to get bounced dude.” Aldean then pointed out to the guy, “We’re trying to help you out dude.”
But said dude simply couldn’t be helped, so he was escorted out of the concert to the tune of Aldean, Bryan and their entire audience singing “Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, goodbye!” while laughing at the entire situation. The My Kinda Party Tour will be headed to Green Bay, Wis. Feb. 16 for their next show.
