cbsashcroft Richard Ashcroft of The Verve: Kind Of A Jerk

For fans, it was a chance to see a favorite artist of theirs perform in a more-intimate setting. For former frontman of [lastfm]The Verve[/lastfm], [lastfm]Richard Ashcroft[/lastfm], it was an abomination. See why he stormed off the stage during a festival performance after the jump.

At the Splendor in the Grass festival in Australia last night, Ashcroft stormed off the stage because of a smaller-than-anticipated crowd, making sure to lash out at festival organizers and fans in the process.

Ashcroft, playing with his band [lastfm]Richard Ashcroft and the United Nations of Sound[/lastfm], was scheduled to perform at the same time as the [lastfm]Pixies[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Empire of the Sun[/lastfm], two of the festival’s biggest acts.

Of course, this means that it was only the hardest of hardcore Ashcroft fans in the audience that he disappointed when he stopped mid-set, told the fans that they might as well go see the [lastfm]Pixies[/lastfm], threw his tambourine and stormed off to a waiting car.

You stay classy, [lastfm]Richard Ashcroft[/lastfm].

(Look, we went the whole post without a bad “Bittersweet Symphony” pun!)

Looks like Ashcroft forgot the “sweet” part of his symphony.
