It is not a wise move to ambush an artist while they are performing for a crowd. Such a move is not only invasive – because the artist is trying to perform a show for folks – it also puts the artist in a nerve-racking situation; they have no idea who is charging at them or if they may be attacked.

Last year, a fan ambushed Slipknot while they were performing live, putting their hands on band frontman Corey Taylor and making their way to a platform where Shawn “Clown” Crahan was performing.

And some years ago, Cradle of Filth frontman Dani Filth found himself in a similar situation; in response to this invasive fan though, Filth decked him.

Per a YouTube video you will find below, Filth is performing alongside his band; at one point, a person abruptly appears on stage and gets close and personal with him.

The singer is far from happy with this, and in response, Filth turns and punches the dude right in the face.

Filth must have knocked the guy hard, for the dude stumbles after getting hit. Filth then proceeds to kick the guy, before returning to performing for his audience.

It is probably safe to assume that the dude who rushed Filth probably learned one hell of a lesson. You can check out the moment for yourself via the video player below.

Have you ever witnessed someone who ran up on stage while a band/artist was performing? What happened to them?

In other news related to Dani Filth, Cradle of Filth will be hitting the road soon for a new tour. Below are all the dates and locations associated with that tour.
