If you attended this year’s Made in America Festival in Philadelphia, you got to see huge acts like Beyoncé, Phoenix, and Nine Inch Nails put on legendary performances.

The Jay Z-curated annual two-day event caters to music fans across the spectrum; touching on rock, pop, hip-hop, dance and more. This year welcomed a very diverse lineup, toting such rock bands as Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails as the final players on the main stage.

The crowd drastically thinned out when QOTSA went on late Sunday evening – most of the hip-hop acts had wrapped earlier that day and people were weary from the day’s heat. So it comes as no surprise that the band recently voiced their distaste for their MIA experience.

This isn’t anything new, Beyoncé fans are hardcore – especially those lucky enough to absorb her presence at a concert from the front row. One fan in Brazil, this weekend, was overwhelmed by Bey’s performance and got a little handsy!

During “Irreplacable,” the singer bent down to interact with her fans when a shirtless, male audience member reached up and tried to grab the singer off of the stage. Security immediately rushed over and yanked Beyoncé out of his grip and was escorted out of the area.

Of course, in true Queen Bey fashion, she kept going on with her song until the end. But, before security guards could kick the ‘attacker’ out, Beyoncé yelled at the staff and told them he could stay and even introduced herself. All in a days work for the fabulous singer.
