Following a Bomb Threat, Patti Labelle Was Escorted Off Stage Mid-concert
Patti LaBelle’s show in Milwaukee was interrupted shortly on Saturday due to a bomb threat. LaBelle was rushed off stage, and the audience was forced to leave.
The 78-year-old singer was speaking to fans at the Riverside Theater in a video uploaded on Twitter when security arrived and escorted her away from the stage. LaBelle, who was in the middle of a performance, exclaimed “Wait!” as she attempted to accept flowers from fans, not understanding why the show had been halted.
Security removed LaBelle offstage after being told of the issue.
My love goes out to you Patti Labelle. You tried to make it such a loving and joyful holiday and someone had to ruin it for you #pattilabelle #Milwaukee #riversidetheatre #threat pic.twitter.com/VBRqANgA3D
