Shannon Noll Apologises For Rant After Yobbo Throws Beer Can On Stage

Shannon Noll has issued a public apology for his foul-mouthed rant after a yobbo at his show at Duck Creek on the weekend threw a beer can on stage.

Noll was ropable saying, “You’re a fucking maggot. Have some fucking balls to come up here. C’mon cheapshot prick. Hey who says he should come up? Shame that prick. Shame that motherfucker right there. Fuckhead, private school stupid fuckhead motherfucker. Have some balls and get up here and I’ll punch your fucking teeth down your throat, you dog-arse prick. Then I’ll fuck your missus and your mum.

“Apart from that fuckstick, sing along to a great song. I’ll give someone a hundred bucks to punch that fuck for me”.

Noll’s rant may have been fuelled by the audience yob but his reaction was unfitting. Coming weeks after the Eurydic Dixon murder and the toxic comments by Tasmania’s embarrassment to Australian politics David Leyonhjelm, Noll’s timing could not have happened at a more inappropriate time.

In a statement he apologised.

I would like to apologise for my behaviour and language at Saturday night’s Duck Creek Picnic Races.

During our set there were people in the audience throwing cans and bottles at the stage and after one guy threw a full can, just missing my head it really rattled me. We had a similar issue last year with a firecracker thrown onto the stage and one of my band members was seriously hurt … you don’t have a lot of deep vision into the crowd from the stage and it’s pretty scary to see something suddenly flying straight at you. We’re just doing our job and these actions are not acceptable.

I completely understand that that is still no excuse for the way I spoke and I am deeply sorry for the terrible things I said that were purely out of frustration.

Shannon Noll’s next performance is Friday 13 July Ipswich.
