UPDATE: Rob Halford has issued a statement regarding him kicking a cell phone out of the hand of a concertgoer last Saturday in suburban Chicago.He says:
"THE FACTS ARE WE LOVE OUR FANS AND YOU CAN FILM US ALL YOU LIKE AND WATCH OUR SHOW ON YOUR PHONE RATHER THAN IN THE FLESH. HOWEVER IF YOU PHYSICALLY INTERFERE WITH THE METAL GOD'S PERFORMANCE YOU NOW KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN."
Rob Halford became the latest artist to lash out against the use of cell phones in concert when theJudas Priestsinger kicked one out of the hand of a fan at his show last Saturday in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Illinois.
Apparently what really ticked off The Metal God was the light on the phone, so during "Judas Rising" he kicked it right out of the fan's hand.
Peter Frampton has also lashed out, grabbing a fan's phone and tossing it backstage.
