Before leaving the stage, McGraw reportedly addressed the rowdies at the microphone. He asked why they were laughing at him and said anyone who disliked the show was welcome to leave. When the boos continued, he jumped up to meet a couple. From there, it’s not entirely clear if they exchanged words or just looked hostile.
As disappointed as the rowdy ones were, others in the arena would have been more upset by all the interruptions. Whether McGraw is at his best or not, they said they wanted to see the rest of the series.
As for McGraw, he offered an explanation for his hot-tempered temper and poor memory. He told the crowd that he worked for about 48 hours straight on the set of the new prequel series from Yellowstone, 1883. He asked them to forgive him if he wasn’t sounding his best or if he was missing a few words, and in general, they seemed to do so.
McGraw returned to the stage after confronting the couple and continued their performance, overcoming the tension and hostility. Some fans are now leaving encouraging comments on the viral video directed at McGraw, urging him not to pay too much attention to rowdies.
McGraw doesn’t have another concert scheduled until Sunday, Nov. 14 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., According to his website. During this time, Yellowstone: 1883 is set to premiere on December 19, 2021 on Paramount +, so hopefully McGraw gets the filming done before he takes the stage again.
