Tenacious D fan stabbed at Las Vegas gig

Police have man in custody after fight broke out at House Of Blues venue

A Tenacious D gig at Mandalay Bay’s House Of Blues in Las Vegas was shut down by police after a fan was stabbed.

According to a Las Vegas news station 8 News Now, police say a fan was stabbed in the leg after a fight broke out during the Tenacious D concert last night (July 28). The victim of the stabbing was taken to a local hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Reports say police now have a suspect in custody following the serious altercation at the venue and are no longer looking for anymore suspects.


The remainder of the comedy duo’s set was cancelled as police shut down the venue. Hair metal outfit Steel Panther, who were due to play the same stage later that night, were also forced to cancel their show.

Tenacious D, who consist of actor Jack Black and comedian Kyle Glass, are touring the UK in support of their third studio album ‘Rize Of The Fenix’ later this year. The album is the follow-up to 2006’s ‘The Pick of Destiny’ and the band’s 2001 self-titled debut.

Tenacious D will play:

Brighton Centre (October 18)
Wolverhampton Civic Hall (21)
O2 Apollo Manchester (23)
London HMV Hammersmith Apollo (24)
