ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – The I Heart Radio Festival airs tonight on KPLR after NEWS11 at seven. In Monday’s Patrick’s People, Patrick Clark introduces us to a woman who saw it all first hand.
Carrie Schwartz was there when green day had a not so great day.
I was more shocked than anything. I think the whole audience was in shock.
Schwartz snagged tickets to the I Heart Radio Festival after winning a contest through her employer, Clear Channel.
She went to Vegas for the two day, 25 band festival two weeks ago when green day lead singer Billy Joe Armstrong smashed his guitar after their set was cut short.
Usher ran a little cause I think he was trying to send out a message of everybody trying to help everybody. So they got out there and their second song and I think he looked up and he saw the screen.
And that’s when the hits stopped and the tantrum began in a video that’s making its way around the internet.
And it said one minute and I think that’s what upset him because I think they had planned on playing for 45 like everyone else. But I think it got cut down for trying to keep it on track.
And the tracks from artists like Taylor Swift and Bon Jovi had everybody back on their feet after the meltdown.
I mean there’s like two minutes between acts. There’s a stage that does a turn, they’re ready to go. Then they had surprise guests like Brittany and Prince. There were people who weren’t even supposed to be there showed up so that made it cool.
And you can bet she’ll be watching for herself on tonight’s show.
I will. Maybe I’ll see myself. Ha Ha Ha. I like to be on TV. Well, hey here we go.
And you can watch too, just keep an eye out for the Carrie and a smashed up guitar.
