It was supposed to be his big comeback. Matt Houston will not have enjoyed the light for long.

In a moment of hesitation during his presence on stage, a moment during which “he let the public believe that he was in a daze”, indicates Le Parisien, the singer did not appreciate that the public began to boo him.
He therefore began, as evidenced by videos published on social networks, to insult and give the middle fingers in the direction of the crowd.

The technical team quickly cut their microphone, and despite their insistence on being heard, had no choice but to end up leaving the stage.

The day after the incident, the singer posted a video on Instagram in which he explains the reasons for his outburst. The public would have “spit on him”, he justifies. “I’m being asked for an apology, there won’t be any, not this time, you see! They break my balls, I answer, ”he added.
The production of the show decided for its part to separate from the singer and apologized by “dissociating themselves from the words and attitude” of Matt Houston.
Since the beginning of this tour we went to different cities in France, where the atmosphere was always incredible, we thank our public for this support.
We give you an appointment at the start of the school year for the resumption of the tour.
