Singer Ray LaMontagne aimed a profanity-laced rant at concert attendees and then stormed off the stage at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park Wednesday night.

LaMontagne reportedly used the F-word several times and then remained off-stage for several minutes before returning to finish his set.

 

LaMontagne was apparently angry because two people near the stage were talking as he performed.

 

Shawn Virgo said he and his fiancee were discussing one of LaMontagne’s songs, which they planned to have played at their upcoming wedding.

 

A woman who went to the concert told 24 Hour News 8 she left because of LaMontagne’s behavior. She said she found the ejected couple in the parking lot and the woman was crying.

As of Wednesday night, he said he did not plan to seek a refund from Meijer Gardens.
