The victim was taken to an LA hospital
A man was injured on Thursday (Nov 7th) when he fell from a second-story VIP balcony during a Blink 182 concert at the Hollywood Palladium. KTLA-TV reports that the man fell 15 feet “face first” to a lower level auditorium during the concert, the second of two sold out shows at the legendary Hollywood venue.
Witnesses report the man was badly injured but responsive after the fall. He reportedly did not land on anyone, but made the “gnarliest splat on the ground.”
A rep for the band has revealed the man is a “dear friend” of the band and that the members are in touch with the man’s family.
The victim was taken to a Los Angeles area hospital, but no official word on the extent of his injuries has been released at this time. Authorities are investigating the incident.
