US singer Teddy Swims brought his Brisbane show to a halt on Tuesday night, after members of the crowd violated his strict concert rules.

The pop star, 31, who is currently performing his I’ve Tried Everything But Therapy tour across Australia, outlined some rules for the crowd as he performed.

‘Back home in Georgia, we call this simple rule Staying with It, so you got to check on your friends,’ Teddy began.

‘I want to set this rule now so that we’re all safe, we’re happy. Safety is the best thing we can do for each other.’

However, several members of the crowd disregarded his warning and began brawling as he performed his heartfelt ballad Something I’ll Never Know.

This prompted Teddy to abruptly pause his performance and publicly call out the rulebreakers.

‘Fighting on this song? That’s crazy. Like every other song I’d say maybe, but this song? That’s wild. What happened to staying with it?’ a furious Teddy asked.

The brawlers were quickly escorted away by security and the hitmaker was then able to resume his concert.

‘Let’s get back to the place where we all loved each other. I’m starting it over from the top,’ Teddy said, before restarting the song.

Fortunately, the rest of the concert went smoothly and Teddy had the crowd screaming for more as he belted out his best known hits. 

Teddy Swims – born Jaten Dimsdale – is a US pop star who had a top five hit in Australia last year with his R&B song Lose Control.
