Local fans who flocked to see Bridges in Derry in 2015 were left furious on his opening night.

A woman heckled Bridges relentlessly so much so she was requested by staff to leave.

Bridges also ended the performance earlier than anticipated.

A woman who witnessed the incident in 2015 described it as her "worst night ever".

“I was at Friday’s show and was in the same row as the girl [who caused the incident]. From the minute she sat down she was a nuisance. I was surprised Kevin [Bridges] lasted as long as he did before he asked her to leave,” she said.
