Bruno Mars once had to ask fans to stop throwing toy grenades at him while he was performing his song ‘Grenades’. “At first it was cute now it’s beginning to spook my band out”, he said. Well, maybe he should head to Lyon, because the missiles are altogether less intimidating there.

Tame Impala yesterday posted a video to Instagram from their show at Lyon’s Théâtres Romains de Fourvière venue depicting them being “showered in cushions by 4000 French people”.

The venue provides cushions for audience members to sit on, which has apparently given rise to the practice of throwing those cushions at acts as a sign of approval.

The band later posted a photograph of the aftermath of this ‘approval’ with the caption, “Crowd standin there all guilty like a puppy dog sittin next to a pile of poo”.

Which may or may not be an indication of what they throw if they don’t like you.
