Ejected But Not Dejected

The man who Tim McGraw personally ejected from his recent concert is still a Tim fan, he tells


Marcus Nirschl, 30, a union glazer from Kent, Wash., was removed from Tim’s June 24 concert in Auburn, Wash., after causing a disturbance. Tim pulled Nirschl onstage after what appeared to be an altercation in the front rows of the audience. With assistance from the stage crew, the fan was quickly removed from the concert. "I had a third row seat I paid $120 for," Nirschl told "And I was just making my way up to my seat because I wanted to be up there when he started ‘Indian Outlaw.’ I was getting shoved up against some empty seats, and I may have pushed some people when I was trying to get my balance. But I didn’t grab nobody’s hair, and I didn’t hit nobody. I’m the nicest guy you’ll ever meet." Nirschl continues, “Tim grabbed me by the back of my belt and pulled me up and then he threw me across the stage. And then I see his fist is back, ready to punch me.” Nirschl added that he was not intoxicated at the time. No charges have been filed in connection with the incident and Nirschl says he’ll attend Tim’s next concert stop near Seattle. “I still like the guy,” he says. “The music’s still great. I just don’t know why he wanted to punch me.”
