Disturbed frontman David Draiman verbally attacked a “rude” fan for texting throughout one of the band’s shows last week. During their gig in Dallas, Texas, on March 23, Draiman turned his attention to a woman on the balcony of the House Of Blues venue. His rant was captured on video.
Draiman says: “What is so important going on in the world that you need to be texting the entire f***ing show? The whole show. You’re right up front, I can see you clear as day. You’ve had your face in your f***ing phone the whole goddamn show. Are we that boring?
“Don’t tell me to go f*** myself. You already did by looking in your phone instead of paying attention. It’s f***ing rude. If you don’t want to watch, don’t watch. But don’t stand there in front of the f***ing stage in the front row of the balcony where everybody can see you texting the whole f***ing time on your phone.”
Draiman then asks the woman if he can have her “attention for the rest of whatever’s left of the set?” He adds: “Now she’s all pissed off. She thinks that I did something wrong to her. I love it. Welcome to the age of the internet, ladies and f***ing gentlemen.”
