David Bowie reportedly decided to take a break from touring in 2004 after he was hit in the eye with a lollipop.

The hard candy – known locally as “love on a stick” – was supposedly thrown in as an act of affection, but caused the singer great inconvenience.

He backed off the runway, bowed, and was assisted by his bound crew, before returning to the microphone and swearing at the offender.

Explaining that he only had one good eye after a childhood fight, he said, “The other eye has become a little more ornamental than it used to be… Fortunately, I’ve got the bad eye.”

Towards the end of the concert, he threw a guitar pick into the crowd and jokingly asked if he hit anyone in the eye.
