Balconyjumpgate Continues: Atlanta Venue Pulls Plug on letlive. Show After Vocalist Climbs Balcony
The PRP reports that Atlanta venue The Tabernacle prematurely ended letlive.’s performance last week after vocalist Jason Butler climbed up to (but did not jump off of!) the balcony. Butler, we can assume, was attempting to show solidarity with Alex McCormick, the twenty-three-year-old fan who was arrested last month after he dove off of the balcony at a letlive. show in Denver, injuring three other concertgoers in the process; the people in charge at The Tabernacle, we can assume, were attempting to avoid a similar scenario. You could argue that the venue was wrong to preemptively punish Butler for something he never actually did, but you could also argue that if the venue had waited, it would have been too late. It’s an ethical dilemma!
Here’s video of the non-incident. It’s worth watching for a number of reasons, such as the facial expressions of nearby fans, the fact that security is clearly losing their minds, and the fact that one guy actually ran over and got Butler to pose for a selfie. Enjoy:
