Audioslave Fans Riot At Free Show

Los Angeles riot police were called in to intervene at a free

AUDIOSLAVE show on Hollywood Boulevard last night (18MAY05) when fans broke down barriers and started fighting each other.

Thousands gathered outside the Hollywood + Highland complex to

watch the band's street performance for TV show JIMMY KIMMEL

LIVE.

But after waiting for 90 minutes for the supergroup to appear

and then facing interruptions as Kimmel broke for commercials,

the fans became restless.

And when the group started playing KILLING IN THE NAME OF - a hit for guitarist TOM MORELLO's former group RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE - the fans became unruly and barriers keeping them apart tumbled.

One bystander says, "It was really frightening. All of a sudden

there was this commotion and the riot police arrived. It didn't

last long but a lot of people feared that this could have become

a much bigger incident.

"It was quite fitting that the gig took place on the eve of the

new STAR WARS release because these guys looked like

stormtroopers."
