Paramore is confirming a man “physically and verbally assaulted multiple women” at their Salt Lake City concert.

Hayley Williams says she and the band were unaware of the alleged incidents while on stage, but they are apologizing to those who were victim to or witnessed the acts of “violence, homophobia and bigotry.”

They wrote on social media, “We did not realize this was happening, as the incident took place out of view from stage. Had we seen any of this happening, we would have stopped the show until the situation was under control.”

 The suspect was eventually restrained and escorted out of the venue by security.

Has another concertgoer ever ruined a show for you?  How?
