Watch Francis Bourgeois do a tailwhip during Sam Fender’s Wembley show

The TikTok star took to the stage as the band played 'Getting Started'

Viral TikTok star Francis Bourgeois was in attendance at Sam Fender‘s recent Wembley show, where he was spotted on stage doing a tailwhip on a scooter.

Fender is currently on tour in support of his new record ‘Seventeen Going Under’, having played two dates at London’s Wembley Arena this weekend. During last night’s show (April 2), Bourgeois was seen on the screen behind Fender and his band as they played ‘Getting Started’.

He then appeared from the side, performing a tailwhip and scooting about the stage as the band continued to play.


“Francis Bourgeois hitting a tailwhip whilst Sam Fender belts out one of his tunes at Wembley wasn’t what I was expecting of tonight, but I loved it,” one person wrote on Twitter.

Another added: “Sam Fender bringing Francis Bourgeois on stage last night was the last thing I expected to see.”

Bourgeois has since shared footage of himself at the gig, starting with him riding his scooter to the venue. “I wanted to make sure I was the first at Sam Fender’s gig, and I arrived quite early” he said over a video shared to Instagram.

The video then sees the viral star scoot into an empty Wembley as Fender and his band are on stage doing soundcheck. “Fucking hell. Ripping on that,” Fender says over the mic before inviting Bourgeois on stage.

The video then cuts to the live show and Bourgeois’ GoPro viewpoint. At one point, Fender takes the camera off Bourgeois’ head and puts it on his own; Bourgeois is then spotted crowd surfing. You can watch the footage below.


Last month, Bourgeois met up with Fender and his band while attending the BandLab NME Awards 2022 at Brixton Academy.

Fender took home the Best Album In The World and Best Album By A UK Artist statues on the night for ‘Seventeen Going Under’. He also opened the ceremony with a performance of the record’s title track.

Bourgeois’ other famous fans include Joe Jonas and Thierry Henry, while he also recently went trainspotting with Rosalía.

Introducing his latest upload, Bourgeois told his viewers that he’d headed to King’s Cross station in London to check out the Class 91 locomotives.

“Hang on a minute – isn’t that Rosalía?” he added as he spotted the Spanish singer-songwriter standing further along the platform. “I’m gonna go say hello to her. I love her music.”

Following his run of arena dates, Sam Fender will play his biggest show yet at Finsbury Park in London this summer. Support will come from the likes of Fontaines D.C.Declan McKennaBeabadoobee and Goat Girl. Tickets for all upcoming dates are available here.

He has also been announced as one of the support acts during Florence + The Machine’s expansive North American tour. View ticket details here.
