You may remember the attack on Noel Gallagher at the V Festival in Toronto back on September 7, 2008 when some crazy guy came out of the wings and tackled him, injuring his ribs. But this is far from the first time there’s been violence on stage.
Jon Moreland was a mixed-up guy from the Los Angeles who went berserk at a Cure concert on July 27, 1986. Just before the Cure hit the stage, this guy stood in front of the crowd and began stabbing himself with a knife. He apparently wanted to make some kind of statement to his recent ex-girlfriend.
No one really knows what happened to this guy, but by some accounts, he died from his injuries.
History sort of repeated itself on April 12, 2000 at a Cure show in Prague. At some point during a gig at The Sports Hall that night, a 24 year-old policeman apparently committed suicide in one of the bathrooms. He had shot himself.
