Nick Jonas is taking a stand against fans throwing objects onstage at concerts.
In a video shared to TikTok, Nick is seen performing “Rollercoaster” with the Jonas Brothers in Sacramento, Calif., as he dodges what looks like bracelets being thrown at the stage. At one point, he looks at the fan throwing the objects and shakes his head, telling them repeatedly to “stop” before he continued performing.

His reaction to the flying objects come amid a string of instances in which artists have been hit — and sometimes injured — by things being thrown onstage. Drake, Harry Styles, Bebe Rexha, Lil Nas X and Kelsea Ballerini are among the slew of artists who have recently had their shows interrupted by the launching of various objects including phones, a sex toy and bracelet. Most recently, Maluma caught a crutch which was hurled at him from the audience in the midst of his 2023 Don Juan World Tour. Instead of stopping the song and calling out the fan, Maluma laughed it off and used the crutch as a prop for his performance.
Adele even addressed the dangerous trend during one of her recent Las Vegas residency shows. “Have you noticed how people are, like, forgetting f–king show etiquette at the moment, people are throwing s–t on stage? Have you seen that?” she’s heard saying in a clip posted to social media. The “Easy on Me” singer, while striding across the stage holding a t-shirt gun, then added, “F–king dare you. I dare you to throw something at me.”
