In recent months, several high-profile artists have been hit by objects while performing.

In June, pop star Bebe Rexha shared pictures of her black eye after she was hit by a mobile phone.

Harry Styles has also been hit by flying objects at his gigs, including Skittles which hit him in the eye and led to the sweets brand making a public plea on social media.
