Aussie man in tears after being kicked out of Paul McCartney concert for dancing

News 08/12/2017

Paul McCartney is currently in Australia for his One on One tour, before he heads to NZ.

On Wednesday night he performed at AAMI Park in Melbourne where a man was arrested and escorted from the venue during the gig.

Michael Gilchrist spoke to Channel Seven News Perth on Thursday and teared up as he described being booted for 'dancing' as 'the worst experience of my life'.

In the interview with the television network Michael claimed his only crime had been dancing to the popular musician's songs.

'One of the security people said you can't be here and I said "mate it's Paul McCartney, we're having a boogie"' he said.

'Next thing I know, I was just dropped by police. I was dragged 30 metres by police, put up against the wall, handcuffed, bashed and basically told "shut the f**k up"' 

He said he was left bruised by the altercation and locked up for several hours, which meant he missed the gig he'd paid big money for.

Victoria Police however have since denied Michael was arrested simply for dancing. 

Instead the police told multiple news outlets the concertgoer was escorted from the venue due to his high level of intoxication and refusal to return to his seat

The police also claimed other patrons made complaints about Michael's disruptive behaviour.
