The band were three songs into their set at Kingston's Hippodrome when Fray was hit in the face with a plastic bottle.

Courteeners cut their gig short last night (1 December), after Liam Fray was hit in the head with a plastic bottle.

The 17th outfit were playing Kingston's New Slang club night at The Hippodrome when the incident occurred, causing the band to leave three songs into their set.

The venue later apologised on Twitter, explaining that after Fray was hit "square in the face, there was no alternative but to pull the gig".

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".
