According to the Wichita Eagle, the culprit had been drinking and wanted to get Jason’s attention to let him know his friends had just gotten engaged. The beer to the head definitely got Jason’s attention. He stopped singing while video of Kelly Clarkson continued. Jason then stared angrily in the crowd, pointed at the offender and slowly shook his head. The idiot was removed from the venue, and Jason’s tour managers declined to press charges.
Later during a break, Jason admitted to the crowd, “It took everything I had not to go kick that guy’s teeth in.”
Despite the beer to the head, Jason is all about fan interaction at his shows. He and Kenny Chesney have fun plans for fans on the upcoming Big Revival tour stadium shows, which start May 2nd in Santa Clara, California.
