Several Dua Lipa fans took the scare of their lives after an attendee at her last concert at Scotiabank Arena, in Toronto, Canada, on Wednesday night, set off illegal fireworks near the end of the performance.
The pop star, 26, also concluded his world tour ‘Future Nostalgia’ with a presentation that at some point became terrifying for many of his followers.
Videos recorded during the singer’s last performance at the show show show the explosion of fireworks in the section that was near the sound booth. Some fans are even seen fleeing in fright when the projectiles exploded.
Following the incident, Officer Cindy Chung said: “It was not necessary to take anyone to the hospital by ambulance, the injuries were minor.”
Meanwhile, a concertgoer explained that the audience first assumed it was part of the end of the show, but when it became known that the explosives had been activated by an attendee, things became “very scary.”
The artist’s fan told People magazine: “It was at the end, during her last song and there was already confetti, so we thought it was part of the closing. No one flinched, except for the people who were downstairs, but we were very scared.”
While the fireworks did not cause any damage to the building, the ‘Levitating’ singer wrote on her Instagram account that she was “shocked and confused” by the incident and apologized to those who felt “scared or unsafe.”
“Last night, unauthorized fireworks went off in the crowd during my concert in Toronto. Creating a safe and inclusive space in my shows is always my first priority and my team and I are as shocked and confused by the events as all of you,” said Dua Lipa.
The artist added that there is already an ongoing investigation to know the details of the event and find those responsible. “Bringing this show to life for my fans has been an amazing experience and I am deeply sorry for everyone who was scared, felt insecure or whose enjoyment of the show was affected in any way. All my love, Dua.”
