JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford kicked a cell phone out of a fan’s hand during the band’s gig in Rosemont, Illinois.
The incident happened six songs into PRIEST‘s set at the Rosemont Theatre where the group was playing as part of its North American tour with URIAH HEEP.
According to eyewitness accounts, Halford‘s frustration appeared to stem from the fact that the fan had turned the “light” on his camera on while filming the show, making it harder for the singer to focus on his performance.
As a result, Halford decided to take matters into his own hands and kicked the cell phone away while the band was playing the song “Judas Rising”.
Fan-filmed video footage of the incident can be seen below. (Note: Halford‘s kick appears around the 39-second mark in the bottom clip.)
