"Witnessed dude fall from 3 stories into crowd @ #justice show. Anybody on the ground hurt? #hammerstein #NYC" - Mark Bellncula
Justice @ Hammerstein Ballroom - 10/21/12 (via Nick Wenck)
Justice brought their tour to NYC for a show at Hammerstein Ballroom last night (10/21) with Chromeo (DJ), one of several big shows happening in NYC the night after CMJ's conclusion. An anonymous source tells us that right before the encore, the members of Justice pointed towards the upper left balcony and a young fan, who "looked like he was tweaking out on something and seemed to think they were pointing directly," thrusted himself towards the stage so hard that he fell over the balcony, and after holding on for a few seconds he fell to the ground. Says the source, "The crazy thing is he immediately jumped up, threw his hat on and bolted from the venue. According to the venue staff and EMTs no one was severely hurt, but one person of the three who he landed on went to the hospital complaining of back pain."
Whoa. The show went on after that and video from it (balcony fall not included) is below.
