George Strait Pitches In to Prevent Falling Fans
The King of Country knows how to help keep his loyal subjects safe! At the recent George Strait/Reba McEntire show in Orlando, Fla., a rush of concertgoers nearly brought down a set of bleachers as George was leaving the stage. Radio station K92FM reports that as ecstatic fans rushed to get photos of George as he was passing by, the bleachers began to topple over. Luckily, security was able to prevent imminent disaster, grabbing the railing to keep fans from falling.
When George saw what was happening, he actually stopped in his tracks to help security keep the situation from escalating.
Unfortunately, such incidents are not entirely unheard of at concerts. Last summer, Keith Urban stopped a show to make sure a young girl he'd fallen on was OK after he was rushed by fans while making his way through the audience to the satellite stage across the arena. After getting up, a concerned Keith stayed with the girl until someone came to check her out.
"We have done this so many times, but this is the first time that has happened," Keith said after getting back up on the stage. "I feel funny going on with the show, so until I know that little girl is OK, I'm just going to wait."
George Strait, Reba and Lee Ann Womack take the stage tonight (March 5) in New Orleans and will be in North Little Rock, Ark., on Saturday.
