In video of the incident, you can hear Madison frantically talking to her stage handlers, saying … “What is going on? Yo, yo, everyone pay attention. Whats going on?!” She then turns to the audience and tells them to back up, seemingly warning them of something happening on the ground.

Napa Police: Disturbance reported during Madison Beer concert at BottleRock, fan ejected
The video then starts to shake, but it briefly captures what appears to be an older gentleman in a green coat wandering about in an area that seems to be closed off near the front of the stage, with no one else around him. People start to freak out and flee the scene … reacting to what many perceived as a possible shooter situation.
Napa Police later clarified what exactly had happened, saying cops responded to a disturbance and booted the guy they identified as the responsible party. NPD says no weapons were actually involved, and that there was no active threat to the community.
Its unclear what the guy mightve done to scare Madison like that, but whatever it was … it clearly rattled her and her fans. Madisons mom later posted about it, saying its sad we live in a world where concert-goers cant enjoy themselves without looking over their shoulder.
A man was ejected from Madison Beers recent concert this weekend after he allegedly pointed a gun at her.
According to videos that surfaced online early Sunday morning (May 26), the singer-songwriters showcase at BottleRock 2019 in Napa Valley was apparently interrupted this Saturday (May 25) due to a reported gun threat.
Per clips capturing the incident, Beer was singing a song on-stage when a man, thought to be brandishing a firearm, supposedly shouted “Gun!” The threat appeared to be real, as Beer could be seen abruptly walking toward the back end of the stage and onlookers looking around in a state of panic and confusion.
“A man literally pulled out a gun at a madison beer concert and no one is talking about it, someone or many people couldve possibly lost their lives if they didnt catch on,” one user tweeted in light of the frightening footage. “This shouldnt be happening especially at a concert.”
In an update tweet from Music News Facts, however, “Police reports confirm that there was no actual weapon involved” and no one was harmed. Another video also seems to show the man in question being hauled off in handcuffs by authorities. As of yet, Beer has not given comment on the alleged incident.

You can recall, 2017 was marred by two tragic events: the Manchester Arena bombing and Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting. Explosives from the former killed 22 people at the venue where Ariana Grandes concert was being held, the latter transpired during Jason Aldeans headlining Las Vegas set, where gunman Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and reportedly wounded 515, becoming the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
