Country music duo Dan + Shay stopped in Baltimore yesterday for the ninth stop of their tour at Rams Head Live downtown. Unfortunately, the Nashville favorites encountered some trouble here in the city from someone who is not a fan and decided to show it by chucking a brick at the front windshield of their tour bus.

The singing and songwriting duo has amassed a following from their Billboard country chart-topping hits “From the Ground Up” from 2016 and “Nothin’ Like You” from last year, as well as their second album, Obsessed. They’re currently touring the United States and Canada and stopping in 35 cities from November through April, Baltimore included.

Last night, the singers shared with their 211,000-plus followers on Twitter that they returned to their bus to find a massive gash in the windshield. “Someone threw a brick through our bus window. The world is a f***ed up place,” they tweeted.

Shortly after, they shared a few videos of the whole ordeal captured by surveillance cameras. Here’s the first shot of the man hurling the foreign object.

Despite making a huge gash in the bus windshield, he wasn’t done. A second video shows him going back and kicking the bus three times.

The then circled back and hurled the same brick twice more.

Needless to say, the country stars’ fans were upset. “why do people do things like this.. so sad. Hope you guys are ok & it can be fixed up,” tweeted one user. “the brick wasn’t enough? What an idiot to try to karate kick the head light. People these days,” tweeted another.

It’s unclear why the man went after the tour bus, but he seemed pretty angry on camera. Whatever his motivation, he must have said some pretty bad stuff while terrorizing the vehicle. The duo tweeted they would have shared the full video, but “the dialogue is completely vulgar, offensive, and inappropriate. Scary.”

Luckily, it doesn’t appear anyone was inside, the singers seem to be OK and they’re still scheduled to perform tonight. Hopefully they’ve already gotten their windshield replaced, too.
