Christy Moore stopped his concert to call out disruptive audience members.

The Irish music legend is currently in the middle of a horde of sold-out residency shows in Vicar Street in Dublin to mark the release of his new album Flying into Mystery.

During his gig on this week, Christy became frustrated after putting up with annoying concertgoers and decided to speak his mind in the middle of his set by calling out the fans, who were sitting all the way back on the balcony.

In a video that is being shared on Twitter, he played a few chords on his guitar before stopping entirely and saying: “I’d like to apologise for anybody sitting near those w**kers up on the balcony there. I don’t know if you can hear me but by f**k, I could hear you all night, f**cking gab, gab, gab.

“Get your money back and f**k off!” he added as he stood up to get a closer look at who he was speaking to.

Christy’s rant was met with cheers from the audience, and he's received even more praise online since.

“I get real gig rage at that sort of behaviour. What is the point of coming to a gig if you are just going to talk all the way through it,” one fan wrote in the video’s comments section.

Another said: “Self important tests who talk all the way through concerts do my box in. I pay money to listen to the artist not their boring crap. Well done Christy for calling them out.”

While a third added: “Nothing worse than people talking away and ruining it for some. Christy perfectly right.”

Another fan, who says they attended Tuesday night’s show, said that Christy apologised following his outburst during the gig.

They said: “I was at it, dead right but apologised after to them and said he hoped it didn't ruin their night. It's not about Christy, it's about respect for all those paying to see him too. Wonderful gig and the juke box was in full flow!”
