BLACK CROWES Frontman Loses Cool At Detroit Gig

BLACK CROWES frontman Chris Robinson lost his cool during a Detroit, Michigan, show on Tuesday, August 27th after determining that the crowd was making too much noise while he and guitarist Paul Stacey performed the song "Beginners And Sinners". "Fuckin' leave!" Robinson yelled at the audience, according to Launch. "I don't mean to be an asshole, but show some respect...If you don't want to listen you should fuckin' cruise or go to the bar across the street or something."

Robinson had politely asked the audience for quiet earlier in the evening, and after the concert he told Launch that he had refrained from such outbreaks up to that point of the tour.

"I haven't really said anything--I figured I don't have the time" to deal with noisemakers, Robinson said. "But tonight I really got fed up with it."

The Detroit show was exacerbated by problems with Robinson and Stacey's wireless equipment, which was bringing a signal from a local radio station into their stage monitors.
