Well, yes it was a llolipop missile, here's a bit of what happened
""And it seems the shades he wore to protect his bad eye from the sun at the previous show in Bergen, may have been useful to perform a similar protective role at yesterday's show, but this time from a flying lollipop! I'm sure you're all aware of the story by now, so I won't dwell on it, but please think carefully before you lob anything stageward in future, people. Anybody remember Brixton 19991?
I'm sure there was no malice intended, but yesterday's incident could have been far more serious than it was. However, in typical Bowie fashion, and despite his understandable initial anger, David made light of the incident when he threw a plectrum into the crowd and then said he would have to go and hide in the band as he thought he may have got somebody in the eye! This was a humorous reference to the fact that the launcher of the lollipop missile refused to own up and simply melted into the crowd"".
