To wonder when it became acceptable to through glasses/ bottles of piss at a concert?

I went to a concert this weekend and the standing area was full of flying glasses and bottles of piss from skanky bastards who were too lazy to go to the loo and risk lose their place in the crowd. Who on earth thinks that this is acceptable behaviour?

Yeah I remember this to at Donnington mid 80s. Yuck.

Better than the bag of shit that got thrown at my mate though...

YANBU. Got hit with a cup of something during Blur at Hyde Park last year. I told myself it was warm beer but I'm pretty sure it wasn't really!

Er, sometimes it's criticism. Not that I've ever done any such thing myself of course, the only time I was moved to hurl something at a performer it was an empty plastic cup, but I remember discussing the then-new phenomenon of the SheWee cardboard doodahs and whether or not they would make it easier for us burds to join in the critical commentary on particularly rubbish live acts like the Stone Roses and suggesting that someone ought to sponsor a Specially-for-Coldplay device that you could shit in and hurl at the stage...

I'm into hip hop and I've never seen or heard of this happening at a hip hop gig.

Agree, that would never happen at a hip hop gig.

It's disgusting. If I got hit by someones piss and I knew who had thrown it, I would beat them up. I mean that!

What musician is that good that you'd run the risk of having piss thrown at you if you go to see them?

SGB, I just actually cried laughing at your post!!!

Thank god I've never experienced this, I'd throw up <very easily triggered gag reflex>.
