After the gig, Fray took to Twitter to defend himself from an angry fan (who later deleted their tweet), saying: "People like you I don't want watching us."

It isn't the first time Fray has had to police members of Courteeners' audience.

Earlier this year, the Not Nineteen Forever star became angry when members of the audience at the Kentish Town Forum were threw smoke bombs onto the stage.

Thankfully no one was hurt, but the band took the incident very seriously, calling for the person to be "kicked out".
