Ronnie Radke Criticizes ‘Boring’ Rock Fest Audience, Receives Backlash For ‘Pathetic’ Performance

Over the past weekend, Falling In Reverse graced the stage at the annual Rock Fest event. However, Ronnie Radke, the band’s lead singer, felt that the audience fell short of the anticipated enthusiasm.

This opinion predictably provoked a spectrum of responses on social media, igniting a flurry of heated debates between Radke and his followers. After performing a nine-song act, featuring their biggest hits and a cover of Smash Mouth‘s legendary “All Star,” Radke expressed his dissatisfaction with the crowd’s reaction on digital platforms.

“Fans are always allowed to criticize bands, their music and performance. It’s time for bands to criticize crowds, Cadot Wisconsin was boring as hell. LOL. what are some cities you band dudes hate playing cause you know the crowds are lame?,” Radke wrote on social media.

His tirade triggered a wave of backlash from fans, leading to a response from one user: “Standing in the rain & thunderstorm & you bitch that there was a huge crowd waiting for you. Maybe you need to bring your game up & learn to put a show on instead of being a little diva. Very pathetic! Get out the business if you can’t work a crowd & bring their energy up.”

While another fan added: “He gave that attitude from the moment he stepped on stage. If the singer makes the crowd feel like he’s inconvenienced then they won’t get into it.”

One more fan chimed in, writing: “You called the crowd lazy pieces of s**t then went on to sing All Star by smash mouth. Sit the f**k down. No wonder why the crowd didn’t f**king like you.”

Radke replied to comments from fans, underscoring his mixed feelings about the audience: “Cadot Wisconsin must’ve been full of cheese curds last night, I’ll go back to my arena tour where they go the f**k off keep the cheese curds and hay stacks.”
