The Kid LAROI took matters into his own hands this weekend by pausing his surprise Los Angeles Concert after two fans stormed the stage, forcing security to intervene.

The fans reportedly got too excited about the performance and were tackled by security guards when they made their way to the stage, while the Kid LAROI assisted in giving instructions to the crowd, asking them to move back and make space, according to a video posted by TMZ. He proceeded to check on his fans and even took a moment to fetch the sunglasses that one of them had lost during the scuffle, according to the video.

The incident took place during a secret concert at the Lodge Room in the Highland Park neighborhood, Los Angeles. As the Kid LAROI began giving instructions to the huge crowd of fans who had gathered to watch him perform, they immediately responded to his requests, video shows.

“Everybody let’s back up a little please,” Kid LAROI said, as he stood at the front of the stage and motioned for his fans to make movements towards the back of the room. His security guards immediately chimed in with the same message, gesturing and repeating “back up, back up, back up.” (RELATED: ‘Take A Breath’: Billie Eilish Stops Concert To Check On Fans’ Condition)

The crowd could be seen cautiously moving backward to give the guards and the two stage-stormers some space as the Kid LAROI made it clear he wouldn’t be performing during a security breach.

“I don’t wanna keep stopping the show. Let’s just back up, back up, back up,” he repeated, with the support of his guards, as seen in the video. He proceeded to check on the person who had attempted to storm the stage by saying “You good?” and then picked up some sunglasses that had fallen during the mishap.

“Yo, whose set of glasses was this right here?” he said. As he returned them to their owner, he followed up with a compliment, saying “They look clean as F-ck,” according to the video.

The added caution at live events comes in the wake of the Astroworld Tragedy in which Travis Scott and Drake continued entertaining their fans during an incident that led to the deaths of 10 concertgoers and left many injured, according to The Guardian.
