I think this is an Americanism that has crept over when artists probably haven’t got enough songs to do the full recommended arena time allowance, so they’re like ‘Oh god. What should we do inbetween the songs?’ The new thing that they started doing is 'Whoever you are, why don’t you turn to the person next to you and give them a hug, tell them you love them.’ I don’t want a hug!!! A stranger! I’m not 'ere to see them, I’m 'ere to see you! So shurrup and sing!
