While the vast majority of concerts are safe to attend, sometimes things do indeed go wrong. In the wake of the Astroworld Music Festival, a concert that ended in tragedy, artists are ever more aware of their audiences and do whatever they can to stop potentially dangerous situations from escalating, as well as getting help to those in need as soon as possible.

Doja Cat was performing at Lollapalooza Argentina when she suddenly stopped her show after noticing a fan in need of help. “Yo. Cut it!” she shouted, videos show. "Somebody needs help over there. Is that right? Am I right? Somebody needs help?” she asked.

She advised to the crowd encircled around the person in need of help to signal to her when everything was okay. “I love you guys, I really do. We can’t have that happening," she added. “I’m sorry, I can’t keep going if things aren’t good.”

The 26-year-old singer also explained to her fans that it was important that they check on people who need help. “It’s nobody’s fault. This stuff happens. There’s a lot of people, and people get crushed. It’s a lot. If you could see the point of view that I’m seeing it from, it’s a lot of people … Don’t get, you know, sad or upset. I’ll be back. I will. I will, I promise,” she said. She soon after resumed her show when everyone was safe.
