Peter (pictured) said he has been overwhelmed by people’s response on social media after hundreds of people flocked to the comments to celebrate him
And @bexy3 said: ‘I’m howling this is amazing. Definitely the type of vibe you want going to a concert after a pandemic.’
In response to his TikTok fame, Peter said: ‘I was completely overwhelmed. I didn’t even have TikTok before my eight-year-old niece had to set me up with one.
‘Brooklyn, who filmed the video, got in touch to send me the video, I watched it back and thought, “Why would anyone want to film that?”
‘I was waving and mirroring the crowd but I was still just doing my job. You will see I never turned my back on the audience.
Adoring fans took to the comments on the popular Tik Tok, which has been viewed 20 million times, to share their love for the dancing security guard
During the show, Anne-Marie took a break and spoke to Peter to check that he was singing along to her songs, which Brooklyn also caught on film.
Peter said: ‘Anne-Marie was asking everyone to get involved and sing, when she asked ‘is everyone singing?’
‘The whole front row of the pit pointed to me and said “he isn’t” so she stopped and said “You can’t stand in the centre and not sing.”
”So she started the song again and I got involved. The comments on the video were so positive.
‘After 18 months we’ve all had, I’m so glad to have live music back and spread some positivity.
‘I love my job. As long as I put a smile on people’s faces, it’s a happy day.’
Lucy Atterbury, who was at the front of the crowd at the concert, said: ‘Peter was amazing from the start.
‘He started chatting to everyone and making sure we were all okay as the place filled up. They started playing background music. Once the acts came on he was incredible.
‘He would dance along to all the support acts but would be there within seconds if anyone needed him whether that was us just needing a drink of water or helping someone find her kids.’
Anne-Marie featured on Clean Bandit’s ‘Rockabye’, featuring Sean Paul, which peaked at number one, and spent years touring with Rudimental.
The pop star was nominated for four awards at the 2019 Brit Awards, including Best British Female Solo Artist., and she has also been a coach on the tenth series of The Voice UK.
