Fight breaks out at Ben Folds gig

Two men in scuffle at Symphony Hall

A fight has broken out at a Boston Pops gig where Ben Folds was making an apperance.

The show at Boston’s Symphony Hall on Wednesday (May 9) saw two men stuggling in the balcony – one with his shirt pulled off – as several people stood around them.

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


Conductor Keith Lockhart halted the performance.

Boston police spokesperson David Estrada said police officers on security detail at the hall, escorted the men off the property and no charges were filed, reports CNN.
