Denver Ozzfest Turns Into Missile War01 August 2007
During Static-X's performance, numerous items were thrown between audience members in the lawn-seat section and those in the reserved-seat section of the city's Coors Amphitheatre venue.
Fan 'Scribe2' writes on website MyFoxColorado.com, "Plastic bottles, plastic cups, plastic 'yard' glasses and chunks of turf were hurled from primarily mid-lawn as far as a third of the width of the second orchestra section. A few shoes and other items were also observed in flight.
"The fracas took on an especially sinister note when half-full bottles and empty bottles and cups were jammed full with sod, creating dangerous missiles.
"It was a shameful display of bad behaviour and a ridiculous endangerment to fellow concert-goers. A fun afternoon of music and revelry became an interesting experience I would never place myself in a position to repeat.
"By some good luck it didn't result in full-fledged rioting or morbid casualties. There were certainly enough alcohol and other mind-altering substances about to have led it that way. The amphitheatre management lucked out."
