Minnesota music fans were treated to a tantrum from Peter Frampton, who abruptly exited the stage after growing irritated at a cameraman.

The 8,000 fans at Treasure Island in Red Wing watched as the 67-year-old rocker lost his cool while opening for the Steve Miller Band Sunday. Fans on social media explain it started when cameras focused on a fan in the crowd, who was displayed on two video screens on either side of the stage as Frampton played.

This fan held up a copy of arguably his most famous album, Frampton Comes Alive, prompting a cheer from the rest of those in attendance. Frampton appeared annoyed at this as he was in the middle of a guitar solo.

Concertgoer Jeff Borg said the cameraman did it again with another fan, who held up his I'm In You album cover. At this point Frampton – known for hits "Do You Feel Like We Do" and "Baby I Love You Way" – approached the camera operator.

As the Star Tribune reports, he proceeded to lean into the camera and yell an expletive, before leaving the stage with no explanation when the song was done.

He later returned, but only after the video screens had been switched off, with a Treasure Island casino spokesperson telling the newspaper Frampton didn't like what was on display "for one reason or another."

Needless to say some fans, particularly those towards the back of the venue, weren't too impressed at having the video feeds cut off. They've been posting on his official Facebook page to register their displeasure.
