"It probably happened at 14," she detailed. "So old enough to know better!"

Delta Goodrem reveals surprising reason bras were thrown at her on stage

After performing in Bowral over the weekend, Delta was surprised to have fans throwing their underwear at her on stage.

In her chat with Sunrise, Delta said the reasoning behind it was because the event was a Tom Jones concert, with Tom Jones known for having female fans throw their underwear on stage at him during the peak of his career.

“I’ve got a bra, I’ve got some knickers, fantastic! This is my lucky day, never at one of my concerts have I had a bra thrown at me,” she said, using a bra to swing around during her cover of 'I'm So Excited'.


Delta shared the funny footage to her Instagram after the event.

"You think you’ve done so much a couple of decades into performing live, and then you get your first bra thrown on stage, and it’s a new standard unlocked," she captioned the post.

"Nah this has actually taken me out hahaha," one fan commented.
