Duke Dumont encountered some shameless disrespect during his performance from Edmonton’s Union Hall last night. During his set, Dumont was reportedly spat on and thrown drinks at by intoxicated attendees in the upper balcony. The ongoing actions were enough to compel Dumont to stop the music entirely and leave the performance, but not before taking the mic to express his frustration: “I don’t get paid enough to get spat on.” The British house maven apologized profusely upon leaving the set, but had clearly had enough, even challenging his alleged heckler before leaving: “If you’re brave enough, come the f*ck down to the stage. If you’re mad enough to spit, you’re mad enough to come right up here.”
Watch the scene transpire below, with Dumont’s reaction beginning at 50 seconds in.
