Jelly Roll halted production of his concert at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre in Greenwood Village, Colorado on Sunday (Sept. 3) to break up a fight in the crowd.

The genre-bending star was in the midst of performing his chart-topping hit, “NEED A FAVOR,” when he noticed a fight broke out in the sold-out crowd. Jelly Roll promptly stopped his performance to call out the hecklers in the crowd who were causing a scene.

Halted His Concert To Break Up Fight

“I don’t normally call shit like this out, but whatever happened right there was completely un-f**king-necessary… Y’all don’t let sh*t like that happen in that section no more,” he told the audience. Jelly Roll then went on to show gratitude for a bearded fan who stopped the fight.

“I appreciate you with the beard for intervening, by the way,” the Antioch native added.

Before continuing on with his performance, the father of two made sure to acknowledge that he and his team will not tolerate people fighting during his show, demonstrating his commitment to ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for his fans.

“We don’t f**king fight at a Jelly Roll show! This is a family affair, man,” he continued.

Fighting Will Not Be Tolerated At A Jelly Roll Concert

By calling out the individuals responsible for the sudden concert disruption, Jelly Roll sent a clear message that such behavior would not be tolerated at this concert or any other concert of his.

“People are going through real life sh*t over here. I don’t know what the f**k is wrong with you. I’ll jump off [the stage] and slap the f**k out of one of y’all if y’all disrespect the show like that again. Unf**king tolerable,” Jelly Roll continued. “I don’t know if you know this or not, but this is the closest thing to church f**k ups like me will ever have right here in this building tonight and I normally don’t even address sh*t like that.”

Jelly Roll has always shared a unique connection with his fans and strives to help them whenever possible. Whether that be with his music or when they are in need at one of his concerts.

Previously Stopped His Concert For Fan In Need Of Medical Assistance

Last month, the “Save Me” singer was forced to stop his concert at the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater in Virginia Beach when he spotted a fan in the audience in need of medical attention.

“We got somebody down right here,” the Antioch native said in a clip captured by a concertgoer. He promptly asked his band to stop the music to make sure the fan was okay and to request that security get them some water.

“I’ll stop the show for anybody to make sure they’re safe,” he added. “I don’t care what song I’m singing. I love you, I want you to feel better.”

“In fact, not only do I want you to get some water and feel better, I want you to get some water, feel better, come back and start drinking again,” Jelly Roll continued to tell the fan who needed medical assistance.

“Save Me” Dominating Country Radio

The news comes after his latest single “Save Me” featuring Lainey Wilson made a major impact at Country Radio upon its release on September 5.

The song earned a whopping 60 first-week adds on stations around the country. “Save Me,” which received over 91 historic adds, earned the title of most-added at country radio this week.

Jelly Roll recently opened up about reimagining the tune with Lainey Wilson and how she gives the song a whole new life. “I didn’t realize how much of an impact the song was going to have on me when I heard it from the perspective of a woman,” Jelly Roll admitted. “Lainey’s like a sister. I think she’s got one of the best voices in country music, and we’re already friends so it was just such an easy collab.

New Album, WHITSITT CHAPEL

The new reimagined version of “Save Me” featuring Lainey Wilson appears on Jelly Roll’s latest album, WHITSITT CHAPEL, which arrived on June 2, 2023. The tune was originally recorded as a solo song on Jelly Roll’s 2020 album, Self Medicated.

WHITSITT CHAPEL, named after the church the Antioch native grew up attending, features 13 tracks, including his chart-topping hit “NEED A FAVOR,” “SHE,” and more.

“This album is about growth and gratitude happening in my life. I wanted to create a project that felt hopeful. I believe the worst feeling a person can have is feeling hopeless or worthless. This is therapeutic music. Real music for real people with real problems,” Jelly Roll previously shared in a statement.

The project debuted at No.2 on the Billboard Country Album Chart and in the Top 3 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart with 90,000 album equivalents.
