NOFX FAN STABBED AT US SHOW
A NOFX fan has been stabbed at a concert in the US.

NOFX are currently touring the US with Green Day, Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Jurassic 5 as part of the nationwide Warped Vans Tour. According to reports on the official tour website, www.warpedtour.com, a 24-year-old man was stabbed during the band's performance at the MARS Music Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida last Saturday (July 29).

A local police report claims the victim, Jacob Stanley, was approached by a man coming out of the moshpit. The report continues: "The suspect asked the victim 'What the fuck you looking at?' Seconds later he approached again, punching the victim with his left hand and stabbing the victim with his right. The suspect ran and was tackled and held down until the police arrived."

Stanley is now in a stable condition after being airlifted from the concert to the local St. Mary's Hospital, where he received surgery. The suspect has been charged with aggravated battery with a weapon.

A spokesperson for the festival said: "Nothing like this has ever happened before in six years of the Warped Tour, it's an isolated incident."

The Warped Tour is due to resume this evening (August 1) at the Amsouth Amphitheatre in Nashville.
