Ten-time Grammy Award-winning singer Bob Dylan, got angry at his fans in a concert held in Vienna, Austria when fans tormented the star by taking photos of him, which Dylan despises the most.
The Noble Prize winner has always had a strict no photos policy at his gigs for several years, but that hasn't stopped his fans from taking photos of him.
On Tuesday Bob Dylan had enough with his paparazzi fans at a show in Vienna, Austria.
CAPTION: Bob Dylan angry at fans for taking photos
Dylan stopped singing the famous Blowin’ in the Wind after one verse to silence his audience.
He snapped at the audience and said,
We can either play or pose,
It’s your decision!
The American singer then backed in an angry huff, tripped over a guitar monitor and almost hit the floor.
The band helped him steady to his feet and he then went into a truncated rendition of It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry before leaving the stage.
The band finished the show with an instrumental version of Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues.
The recent incident marks the first time that Dylan spoke to the crowd in some time.
Audiences used to only hear his speaking voice when he introduced the band, but he stopped doing even that about two years ago.
Before the start of Bob Dylan's shows, audiences are informed that taking photos is not allowed.
At New York’s Beacon Theater last year, security personnel roamed the aisles with flashlights, looking for concertgoers with cellulars.
Repeat offenders were threatened with ejection.
Bob’s ongoing European tour wraps May 7th in Valencia, Spain.
