Azealia Banks stopped her performance after an audience member threw a can onstage.

Azealia Banks played in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday night at the city's Listen Out Festival. Her gig reportedly lasted only minutes however, as she chose to cut the performance short on account of audience behavior.

Banks was performing her song "ATM Jam," when an audience member threw a beer can onto the stage. This prompted Banks to storm off, cutting the music from her backup as well. According to reports she left the stage after only 90 seconds.

A representative from Banks' camp released a statement on behalf of the 22-year-old singer reading, "Azealia Banks was forced to cut her set short last night at the Listen Out Festival in Melbourne on 5th October 2013. This was as a result of a member of the audience throwing a full can on beer at her on stage. The incident made Azealia and her stage crew feel unsafe. Banks would like to apologize to those fans in the audience whose experience was affected by the behavior of one individual."

Check out video of the incident above and Banks' tweets on the matter below.
