Michael Bublé performed at the Powderham Castle in Exeter on Monday 25 July, after the highly anticipated concert was rescheduled following the 2021 cancellation amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Sadly the show did not go to plan as the Canadian star had to pause his concert when members of the crowd began yelling that someone needed help.
Michael asked the crowd what the problem was and it became clear that someone needed medical attention. He then ushered medics into the crowd and spoke to his audience while the affected person was being cared for.
Speaking to the Mirror, one concertgoer said: “People in the audience were shouting and trying to get his attention as paramedics were required.”
Michael’s concern for the concertgoer comes less than a year after Travis Scott made global headlines, when 10 people died at his concert in Houston from compression asphyxia.
A night before the Exeter performance, fans labelled Michael’s performance in Hatfield “dangerous” due to a lack of traffic marshalls. Attendees walked down a dual carriageway in the hopes of making it to the show on time.
