Everyone at Patti LaBelle concert safely evacuated Milwaukee tonight following a bomb threat
THETALK.NG learnt that Everyone at the Patti LaBelle concert was safely evacuated Milwaukee tonight following a bomb threat.
Patti LaBelle was rushed off stage in the middle of a Milwaukee show Saturday night after the venue was hit with a bomb threat.
The unsettling moment at the Riverside Theater was captured on camera, showing two men rush onto the stage and grab the mic stand from LaBelle as she was clutching a bouquet of flowers and speaking to the crowd.
“Hold up. Wait!” LaBelle cries as one of the men grabs her by the arm and forces her to drop the bouquet. Another man in black runs from stage right and snatches LaBelle’s free arm.
The audience’s laughter quickly turns to confused coos as the men escort LaBelle offstage and the musicians abandon their stations to run after the Godmother of Soul.
Authorities evacuated everyone from the theater and are investigating the threat, according to a police release shared by a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter.
Milwaukee Police issued a notice that there had been a bomb threat and all patrons were to be immediately evacuated.
By 10p EST Saturday night, authorities confirmed everyone – including the GRAMMY-winning diva – had been removed from the facility.
At writing, investigations are still ongoing as to who caused the commotion. LaBelle has yet to issue a statement on the matter.
“We are thankful for the efforts of the Milwaukee Police Department and our customers and staff for their safe and orderly exit. We are working with the artist to reschedule the show,” the statement said.
Police say concert attendees were safely evacuated and the investigation is ongoing, according to CNN affiliate WTMJ.
CNN has reached out to Milwaukee police for further details.
