Tim McGraw Will ‘Try To Stay Calm’ If An Object Is Throw On Stage
Tim McGraw weighed in on objects like cell phones and other items being thrown on stage at acts and some performers getting hurt. It happened to pop star Bebe Rexha who was hit in the face with a cell phone on stage in June. She had to stop the show and get stitches. Kelsea Ballerini also got hit in the face with a bracelet a fan threw and walked off stage during a performance in June.
McGraw, who announced a new tour starting in March 2024, told CNN that he thinks it is “terrible.” He said, “I mean, you could really injure somebody, and you could miss and hit somebody in the audience.” He went on to say that if someone gets hurt, it “ruins the show for everybody.”
Tim said that he is used to “soft goods” being thrown at him and said that was “fine.” He added that he feels it isn’t appropriate to throw things, saying, “Everybody’s there to have fun, and there’s just no need in any of that.”
McGraw, who has lost his temper with fighting fans in the audience in the past, told the news network that he hopes it doesn’t happen to him. If it does, he will “try to stay calm.”
Tim played a special, intimate fans-only show at L.A.’s Whiskey A Go Go recently. While on stage, he announced his 2024 “Standing Room Only Tour.” McGraw said, “I always want to deliver the best possible concert I can for the fans.”
He added, “We’ve got some really special plans to make this the biggest and the best tour we’ve ever done.”
“The Standing Room Only Tour” will hit arenas across 30+ cities starting March 14, 2024. Carly Pearce will join the tour on all dates as direct support.
McGraw posted to his 3.5 million followers on Instagram, “Announcing the Standing Room Only Tour 2024 with special guest @carlypearce! Tickets are on sale next Friday, August 4, at 10 am local time. Go to timmcgraw.com to sign up for notifications! Can’t wait to see you out there…”
