Jo-Anne George, 57, from Melbourne, claims she was thrown out of a Stevie Nicks concert
Jo-Anne George, 57, from Melbourne, paid $204 for a floor ticket to see the former Fleetwood Mac songstress perform on November 16.
Ms George told The Age there were no issues as she was dancing to opening act Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders, but once Nicks came on stage she was asked to stop.
The 57-year-old, who stands at 5’5″, said she was asked to sit down three times by security, after another patron gave her their seat.
‘The next minute three of them had me and were dragging me along the floor of the aisle. They threw me out of the stadium,’ Ms George said.
‘I have never been so humiliated in my life. I was assaulted and treated like a criminal.’
The Stevie Nicks fan said she had never seen the songstress (pictured during her Sydney show) live before and was excited for the concert

Ms George said the rough treatment has left her with a sore back and bruises on her arm, as well as feeling depressed and anxious.
The Stevie Nicks fan said she had never seen the songstress live before and was excited for the concert.
She said the treatment she received by the security guards was ‘totally uncalled for and very aggressive’.
