Ben Folds Five Fans More Thugged-Out Than Anyone Could Have Imagined

May 10th, 2007 // 4 Comments

bpops.jpgA fight broke out last night during a Ben Folds Five/Boston Pops concert. According to the Associated Press:

…two men [struggled] in the balcony — one with his shirt pulled off — as several people stood around them. [Pops conductor Keith Lockhart] briefly halted the performance, which featured singer-songwriter Ben Folds, while the men were escorted out…

Witnesses said they heard a scream from the balcony, and the sound of chairs falling, then a second scream as the fight escalated.

WHDH-TV has the video, which at the moment doesn’t seem to be working; meanwhile, expect Folds to make a formal statement today, in which he asks that his fanbase–which ranges from white, affluent I-bankers to white, affluent advertising copywriters–puts aside their differences in the name of peace.

    @Chris N.:
    I doubt he was “talking on a cellphone.” Apparently, in light of this incident, he was most likely “talking at” someone,Gordon Gecko style.

    I give the Vera Wang-lookalike in the center of that pic credit for, apparently, laughing as she helps separate those boneheads.

    “expect Folds to make a formal statement today, in which he asks that his fanbase–which ranges from white, affluent I-bankers to white, affluent advertising copywriters–puts aside their differences in the name of peace.”

    OMG. Hilarious.

    This merely reinforces the fact that people who choose to wear Khaki pants are not to be trusted.
