Taking the angle that Brian wasn't saying anything important is funny to me. If you'll notice, he is the one on stage and the person that people paid their hard earned money to hear. So to those people, yeah, he actually was preaching the sermon on the mount. Would be different if everyone were sat in a living room talking at a party and Brian demanded everyone shut up and listen to him. It's not like the kids were quietly speaking to each other. They were obviously being obnoxious.

Anyway, Brian obviously apologized to them so whatever. He's human and is allowed to have a bad night and shouldn't be crucified for it. This talking crap happens all the time and if I were him, I probably would have snapped a lot sooner.


As brucesboots said, I personally could care less if they don't come to see Brian/TGA in the future. Doesn't sound like they were there for him to begin with.

I'm taking the angle that people should just be nicer to people in general. It's frankly kind of sad that nobody else is sharing this point of view.

I'm sure if I were to go back in time to 2007 and show brian this video he would cringe.

I guess I'm not sure where you're coming from. I think it's pretty clear that the general feeling is that it was out of character whether because he swore or how he handled the moment in general.

If Brian had reacted badly when he was confronted by the injured party after the show instead of giving him free merch and a personal apology, and also if he had not had a history of normally handling these incidents with a better sense of humor, I suppose there would be more of a viewpoint on here that he should be nicer to people.

I doubt you'd have to go back to 2007. You do have a point though, Brian could've been nicer when telling them to shut the fuck up but that doesn't excuse the people ruining the show for others. They were drunk, loudly talking through songs, requesting songs that were already played and shouting over Brian between songs. His frustration is understandable even if he did overreact.

im really struggleing to understand why this is still being debated , all of us who were there that night have said Brian had a crack at this bunch of twats because they were rude , loud and spoiling the show for all of us, yeah the crowd can and always will be loud at a rock gig but this wasnt a rock gig ,im sure Brian or any other band wouldnt want it any other way, but this was an acoustic set which was being ship wrecked by a bunch of drunken twats , as it was we all lost out in that the set list was shortened.
At the end of the day you show the artist a bit of respect and listen to the quiet songs and when he is trying to explain the songs , Its called manners, something that clearly they didnt have. Brian aint the first either ,I heard Bruce tell someone to shut the fk up at one of his solo shows....so nothing new here folks. Some of the treatment Dan Andriano got during some of his sets was dreadfull and just ignorent.
What Brian would have said in 2007 isnt relevent because this wasnt a rocky Gaslight show.

I didn't understand why it was sad that we're not jumping all over Brian, so I was trying to say why we were not.

I re-read the thread from the show. The reports were that these audience members were being disrespectful during the concert, then went out of their way to give Brian a hard time after the show, THEN wrote a blog about him where they pretty much made themselves look even worse.

Self centered drunks = annoying

Brian = pushed over the edge

The end.
