Harry Styles has joined the list of performers who have been hit by an object while performing.

On Saturday, the 29-year-old was struck in the eye midway into his performance at the Vienna, Austria, stop of his Love on Tour show. In the video clip below, Styles can be seen walking back to the stage when an unidentified object hits him right in the eye. 

Styles initially hunched over in pain but stood upright and continued making his way back to the stage while holding his face. This isn't the first time Styles has been hit by something while performing on stage.

In June, Styles was hit with a bouquet of pink flowers while delivering a performance onstage in Cardiff, Wales. He was also hit with a bag of Skittles in Los Angeles in November and narrowly dodged chicken nuggets during a show in Madison Square Garden in 2022. 

The incident is the latest in a string of situations where artists have been hit in the face with objects. In June, Bebe Rexha was it in the face by a phone after a fan threw it at her during a show in New York City. She was later rushed to the hospital to receive several stitches.

Kelsea Ballerini was also a victim of the disturbing trend when an unknown item struck her in the face during a performance in Boise, Idaho, last month. Ballerini exited the stage to tend to her injury before returning and asking the crowd not to throw anything at her.

Other artists have avoided serious injury, such as Drake, who had a phone brush by his arm during the first night of the It's All A Blur tour. Adele had a tougher approach to getting hit with an object as she gave a stern warning to fans during her Las Vegas residency show last week. 

"Have you noticed how people are like forgetting fucking show etiquette at the moment, people just throwing shit on stage have you seen them? I fucking dare you to throw something at me, and I'll fucking kill you," Adele said before firing off a t-shirt gun at the audience. "Stop throwing things at the artist when you can shoot it to people. [Laughs] I've been seeing these people, these people lost it."
