Thirty Hurt at Rock Concert as Eminem Sings
Sun May 26, 8:09 AM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - About 30 people were injured on Saturday when the audience at a rock concert pressed forward as rap singer Eminem (news - web sites) took the stage, officials said.

Fire Department spokesman Alan Etter said most of the injuries at RFK Stadium two miles east of the Capitol were not life-threatening but one man had a heart attack and was revived on the scene.

Concert-goers interviewed on local television described being jostled, squeezed and crushed as fans in the standing-only "mosh pit" surged toward the stage.

"I was literally crushing someone," said one young man. Another said, "Everybody was on the floor" with other people being pushed forward and stepping on them.

The concert was suspended for 10 minutes.

There are a few things wrong with this article.
1. A rap show is not a 'Rock Concert'.
2. There are 'Mosh Pits' at rap concerts? I didn't know you could really mosh to that.
3. A heart attack can happen at anytime. I wouldn't blame an Eminem concert for that.. well, maybe i would...

Tell me what you think!

Well, I actually -have- been to a rock concert where Eminem was. It was Anger Management. (The -only- reason Eminem is included on my concert list) But I'm guessing that he was the main act at this particular show, so you're right in thinking that the author either knows nothing about music, or just smoked some crack, and has been doing so for many years.

As for the mosh-pit... Yeah, there was one when I saw him. Kinda half-hearted, but it was there.
