As we reported earlier today (Dec. 1), Luke Bryan struck a concertgoer during Charlie Daniels 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam last night (Nov. 30).
Luke’s team issued the following statement today (Dec. 1) regarding the altercation: “A man in [the] front row was making crude hand gestures toward Luke during his performance. It was insulting not only to him, but more importantly to the men, women and families sitting around him who were there to support and celebrate Charlie Daniels and the efforts of raising money for the military veterans–some of who were in the audience. The concert security personnel saw the man’s disruptive actions of the event and he was escorted out.”
While Luke makes no mention of striking the concertgoer, it’s evident from multiple video angels that he does come into contact with the non-fan, who was reportedly taunting Luke and flipping him the bird during his 20-minute set.
