Dublin rockers Kodaline encountered a rather lively crowd at MTV Crashes Plymouth yesterday, prompting lead singer Steve Garrigan to address a row that erupted in the crowd.
Garrigan was singing when he noticed a circle form in the crowd around two men who were engaged in a fight.
He asked them to stop and said that the festival was not the place to be fighting. Security then descended upon the melee and the band carried on with their set.
Last night the Kodaline twitter account re-tweeted a post about the "lively crowd" at Plymouth.
THe band did not address the incident, however, simply tweeting, "Thank you @MTVCrashes Plymouth! Had an awesome show! Big love to @iamfoxes @TinieTempah @LittleMix for smashing it!"
The Plymouth Herald praised the band's set which kicked off with new track Ready and ended on a high with All I Want.
However, the paper reported, "there was a point in which the laid back, cool attitude of the band wasn't enough to keep the audience on focus."
Having just played a surprise gig on Spike Island for just 100 people, the lads may be gearing up to join Ed Sheeran at Croke Park this weekend.
"Hopefully we'll get to catch Ed this weekend. This is our only weekend off for the whole summer but you wouldn't turn down Ed if he asked you," Vinny told Independent.ie.
"Coke Park is a dream for us and if we had the opportunity to do it, it would be absolutely incredible," Steve added.
