Bush Frontman Gavin Rossdale Mobbed at Indianapolis Performance
As the weather warms up, there've been a lot more rockers energized by the return to the outdoor venues and several of them have literally taken the leap into the crowd to get into the spirit. For the most part things have gone well for rockers like Papa Roach's Jacoby Shaddix and P.O.D.'s Sonny Sandoval among others, but Bush's Gavin Rossdale ran into a little trouble with his crowd invasion during a show in Indianapolis over the weekend.
The band was performing at the Klipsch Music Center for the annual May Day concert Saturday (May 11) as put on by local rock station X103 and Bush had been putting on an energetic performance up to the point where he went out into the crowd. Rossdale proceeded to hop into the audience, traveling the aisles of the seated area until he decided to reach the furthest regions of the venue by venturing out onto the lawn.
The group was performing their cover of the Beatles' 'Come Together' as the audience in the grassy area got a little more frenzied in hopes of catching Rossdale close up. Eventually the singer had to warn everyone to take a step back and backup as the rush toward him was becoming too massive. The band also shut down the song to make sure everyone was hearing the singer's request via his microphone.
Eventually the audience relented, allowing the singer to reach security and he was allowed to return to his bandmates. Fan shot footage of the scary situation can be seen below.
