Chance The Rapper managed to fend off a stage invader who approached him from behind during his gig in Miami, Florida last night (October 10).
Video footage posted by fans shows the stage invader trying to tackle or possibly hug the rapper, who reacts quickly and manages to push him towards the floor before security takes the uninvited guest away. Watch below.
Chance The Rapper has yet to discuss the incident on social media, and will take to the stage at the same Miami venue tonight (October 11).
Chance began his US tour on September 24 and briefly interrupted it for a one-off performance at London’s Roundhouse on September 30 as part of Apple Music Festival 2016.
During the tour, which runs until October 21, he has teamed up with civil rights group National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) to offer concertgoers voting registration forms at his shows.
NAACP president Cornell William Brooks said of their collaboration: “Chance the Rapper is an artist whose music praises and lifts up our common humanity, and whose call for action speaks to the yearning of this moment. This year, more than it has in a generation, we must use the power of our voices and our votes and exercise our sacred right to vote.”
