Duke Dumont walked offstage midway through a set Union Hall in the Candian city of Edmonton at the weekend after crowd members threw drinks at him and spat on him from the balconies above the stage.
The two-time UK number one single holder halted the music and got on the mic to explain his actions to the crowd, before leaving the stage.
After apologising to "99.9 per cent" of the crowd, Duke Dumont stated “I know you guys paid good money, but I don’t get paid enough to get spat on. There’s spit all over the CDJs.”
He then turned his attention towards the offending audience members, shouting “If you’re brave enough, come the fuck down now. Whoever did that, come down to the stage,” before making his exit.
