Aww man :( keep it up bro you'll get there in the end! Just concentrate on you not anyone else
It really does. I used to have a HUGE fear of public speaking, voice cracked, hands shook, forgot everything, did terrible, but I had to do a lot of it in school and over time I got used to the fear and could do a good job on them. There's all types of things you could do, like make a joke out of it or adlib a line in your song about him being a douche, but, most important thing is to sit through it and keep doing it. That's really the trick to being comfortable in front of a crowd, so don't get down on yourself for running off. You went up there and you sat through it for a certain amount of time, that is an accomplishment and your skin is a little tougher for it. All your favorite bands/artist went through the same thing, you're on the right track.
Hey OP, at least you decided to actually do something about your fear and that at the very least is admirable. I wouldn't give up performing just because of one asshole, so keep doing what you want.
