layne staley started going off on the crowd for how stupid the people of louisiana were for nearly voting david duke into office of governor or whatever it was he ran for around that time. the crowd just about boo'd them off the stage. after the show, people were throwing all kinds of shite at them as they were boarding their bus
Especially for acoustic shows. Drives me crazy. I've seen the performer literally stop the show and ask people to be quiet
10. Yelling "Sit down!" at people who are standing up.
This is a real problem at theater and arena shows that attract fans over the age of, say, 40. Nobody can quite agree when to stand or when to sit down. Inevitably, there are some people standing right in front of people that wish to remain seated. Between songs, someone will scream "Sit down!" The stander either obliges, or yells back something like "Go frick yourself." The person in the seat just seethes with rage, and the tension seeps through the whole section. Often the person is standing only because someone in front of them is standing. It leads to chaos, and grumpy old people spending the entire show miserable. This has to stop. Here's a simple rule of thumb: If you can't see, stand up. It's very easy. Inversely, if everyone in front of you is seated, sit down. Go with the flow and just relax. We're all in this concert together.
