Russell Vitale experienced the highs and lows that Las Vegas has to offer, unfortunately it ended with him being ripped from the stage mid-performance.
The 26-year-old “Losin Control” rapper was scheduled to perform Saturday night at KAOS, the new day and night club at the revamped Palms Casino Resort.
Sources close to the performance tell The Blast, Russ and his crew brought some of their own equipment, including microphones, to the venue and began experiencing major technical issues.
We’re told the club jumped to action and found Russ a microphone that worked, but unfortunately the star was being “difficult” and decided to air out his frustrations when he hit the stage.
Sorry to the fans that came out…like I said on stage, I wasn’t gonna let the venue fuck up the show repeatedly without sayin something to y’all who paid money, waited etc..they didn’t like me calling them out. Like i also said, they’ll tell a different story but y’all saw 🤷🏽♂️😞

“I’ll never come back to his club again, just going to do my own show in Vegas,” Russ told the screaming crowd, before adding, “This club is trash!” We’re told shortly after the outburst, security came and promptly booted Russ from the venue. He later went on Twitter and defended his position, but the show as over.
For what it’s worth, we’re told other artists at KAOS have been performing on the same equipment with no issues, including Bad Bunny, Ozuna, Marshmello and J Balvin.
