Concert Disasters

One 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.

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.
