Madness frontman Suggs had to be taken away by security guards after interrupting a Sting concert earlier this week.
Sting was playing at Oxfordshire’s Henley Festival on Tuesday night (July 3) when Suggs stumbled onstage at the black tie event.
According to The Sun, Suggs drunkenly told Sting: “I mean this so sincerely. When I was a kid, right, I used to look at Sting and I used to think, one day goddammit. Given the chance.
“And here it is right before you. Ladies and gentlemen, Sting.”
Sting stopped the performance to thank the Madness frontman but Suggs refused to leave the stage, and had to be escorted away by security.
One audience member said: “It was an upmarket black tie event, it was the last place you’d expect to see an ageing rocker drunkenly burst on to the stage.”
But Sugg’s wife denied he was drunk, saying: “I wasn’t with him. But he wasn’t really drunk because he knew he had to go to Stuttgart today. He just got on stage, which he always does, and said how much he loved Sting.
“That was about it. I don’t think he was dragged off by security. It’s just been wildly exaggerated.”
