Another Day, Another Object: Morgan Wallen Hit With Phone at Denver Concert

Morgan Wallen‘s concert at Denver’s Mile High Stadium on Wednesday (July 3) was interrupted when a fan threw an iPhone at him while he performed “Cowgirls.”

In a video caught by a crowd member, Wallen is seen performing the hit when a phone strikes him on the shoulder. Barely flinching, the singer picks it up and tosses it back into the crowd before continuing his performance.

Wallen has had a tumultuous time with fans throwing objects at him. During a show in Melbourne, Australia, back in March 2023, the “Last Night” singer narrowly missed a drink that was thrown by an audience member.

In a fan video that captured the wild moment, Wallen stops the music and stares at the area where the cup came from while the crowd shouts “kick them out! kick them out!” Wallen, pointing, says, “Go ahead. One of y’all own up to it or I’m gonna kick your whole f—in’ group out. One of y’all go ahead and say ‘I did it.’ All right, kick that kid out of here then.”

Then, during a show in Minneapolis last month, the singer was hit in the face with women’s underwear while performing.

The incident is part of a troubling trend of fans throwing objects at artists, which has been on the rise.

In June 2023, Pink was left shocked when a fan threw their mother’s ashes onto the stage during a performance at BST Hyde Park. Similarly, Cardi B had water thrown at her during a concert in August 2023, and Bebe Rexha was hit with a phone in June 2023, causing injury.

Harry Styles and Kid Cudi have also faced similar disruptions, with Styles being hit in the eye by a Skittle during a 2022 show in Los Angeles and Kid Cudi cutting his Rolling Loud set short due to fans throwing bottles at him.

In addition to these incidents, Wallen recently faced legal troubles for his own object-throwing episode.

On April 7, he was arrested for allegedly throwing a chair off a rooftop bar in Nashville, just days after starting his One Night At A Time North American tour.

He was charged with three counts of reckless endangerment and one count of disorderly conduct. The case is set to continue later this summer, with the next hearing scheduled for Aug. 15.

Despite his legal woes, Wallen’s popularity continues to soar. His collaboration with Post Malone, “I Had Some Help,” recently rebounded from 2-1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, marking its sixth non-consecutive week at the top. The song, Post Malone’s sixth leader and Wallen’s second, spent its first five weeks on the list at No. 1 beginning upon its debut in May.

The collaboration is the first to log six weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 in 2024, surpassing the five weeks on top (of six in total dating to late 2023) for Jack Harlow’s “Lovin on Me.” No song has led longer since Wallen’s “Last Night” rang up 16 weeks, nonconsecutively, at No. 1 in March-August last year.

“I Had Some Help” also hits No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart, becoming a rare title that has topped the all-format airplay tally as well as the Country Airplay survey.
