It’s always been a classic move for fans to throw their bras on stage to artists they admire and love, but lately, fans have been taking the idea to dangerous territory. Instead of throwing bras at the feet of artists, fans have been throwing hard objects like phones directly at their faves in a new, disturbing trend.
One of this summer’s strangest trends has seen fans seemingly trying to actually hit the singers they are there to see. Several of these artists have even been injured and had to stop their concerts.
Here are 10 times recently that fans threw things on stage at musicians, disrupting their shows.
1. Bebe Rexha
In June, Pop singer Bebe Rexha was struck in the face when a concert-goer threw his phone directly at her at a concert in Manhattan. The attack split her eyebrow, gave her a black eye, and required stitches.
2. Harry Styles
On July 8, former One Direction singer Harry Styles was performing in Vienna, Austria, when a fan threw something that hit him in the face.
At a festival in Germany in July, a fan threw something at her during her performance. "Want your a-- beat? Throw it again,” she said as she continued her performance. “Throw it again. I’m a beat your a--.”

8. Drake (again)
Drake's fans have been throwing bras at him throughout the duration of his tour, and one made news when he picked up her bra, and upon discovering the size was 36G, he shouted, "Locate this woman immediately!" More recently, a fan threw her 36L size bra on stage.
