Dierks Bentley Comments on Woman Who Threw Up Onstage at His Concert
It turns out that Dierks Bentley doesn't really mind if you throw up on his stage.
The singer got more than he bargained for when he brought a trio of fans onstage at a concert at the GIANT Center in Hershey, Pa. on Nov. 13 to sing along with his hit, 'Drunk on a Plane.' One of the girls ended up vomiting onstage, which was captured in a video that quickly went viral.
"She dressed up like one of the flight attendants on 'Drunk on a Plane,' so I grabbed her and her friend, and there's another dude that's dressed like a pilot, so I threw them up on stage, and they were dancing around, and I thought everything was good," Bentley recalls to Broadway's Electric Barnyard.
But not for long.
"I heard the crowd just kinda -- it was kinda like a scream of, I don't know if it was laughter or panic or what, but some noise came out of the crowd," he continues. "I looked around, and she was gone, kinda running through the pit, and all the people had parted like the Red Sea. She was hunched over, and I looked back down at the stage, and there's puke all over the stage."
The unfazed singer changed the lyrics to 'Puke on a plane' and also yelled, "Cleanup on aisle six!" to try to make light of the unfortunate moment.
"That's the first time that's ever happened," he reveals. "I've been doing this for a while, and I've seen people throw up in the crowd, and I've seen fights, and I've seen blood. But I've never seen puke on the stage."
Bentley's reaction to the incident was not what you might expect.
"It was pretty awesome, to be honest," he says with a laugh. "I'm always looking for something cool about every night, so for that to happen was pretty epic. I'd love for that to maybe happen again."
The singer says he plans to reach out to the embarrassed fan and make sure she's okay, since TMZ picked up the video and broadcast it worldwide.
"I think her mom even called into the radio station and said she wasn't drinking," he notes. "But there was a picture of her in Twitter world of her with a drink in her hand, so I don't know."
