Azealia Banks Ends Set During First Song After Fan Throws Beer Can At Her

Azealia Banks cut her set short in Melbourne, Austraila, after a fan threw a full beer can at her

Azealia Banks hasn't had a great experience at the Australian Listen Out festival so far. The rapper narrowly dodged a beer bottle thrown at her during her appearance in Sidney last weekend, and suffered a similar incident last night at the Melbourne date.

Banks was forced to cut her set only 90 seconds in after a fan threw a full beer can in her direction, making the rapper feel "unsafe". The official statement from Azealia's rep is below.

“Azealia Banks was forced to cut her set short last night at the Listen Out Festival in Melbourne on 5th October 2013. This was as a result of a member of the audience throwing a full can on beer at her on stage. The incident made Azealia and her stage crew feel unsafe. Banks would like to apologize to those fans in the audience whose experience was affected by the behavior of one individual.”

It still appears as if Banks will perform her set at the festival tonight in Brisbane. Watch footage from the incident below.
