Concert Disasters
Concert DisastersOne great thing about rock concerts is that anything can happen. On-stage meltdowns, unfortunate animals, planning fiascos, fires, riots... sometimes, there's even music. And while events such as Altamont or Woodstock '99 will always be synonymous with full-scale concert disasters, these are hardly the only examples of rock concerts gone horribly / hilariously wrong. Test your knowledge with this quiz on legendary live music mishaps.

I was at that Creed show. They sucked. I seen Guns and Roses, opening for Whitesnake, in 1988. Axle Rose was so high, he couldn't remember the lyrics to any of their songs and got booed off the stage: like three songs in. They tried to do a fourth song but the crowd wasn't having any of it.
