Blink 182

Fan Plummets from Balcony

During L.A. Show

A fan and close friend of Blink 182 was rushed to an L.A. hospital last night during the band's sold-out concert at the Hollywood Palladium -- after falling from a 2nd-story balcony inside the building, Blink's rep tells TMZ.

Witnesses described the mayhem on Twitter, saying the fan fell "face first" while Blink was playing "Dammit" and looked in rough shape after the accident. The fall was roughly 15-20 feet, but witnesses say he was responsive.

One witness who was standing under the balcony tells TMZ, the man landed right next to her and his body made the "gnarliest splat on the ground ... I can still hear the sound. It was awful." He didn't land on anyone. The witness says he had blood all over his face.

According to the rep, the fan is a "dear friend" of the band, but the rep wouldn't be more specific.

It's unclear how the fan fell, and whether his injuries are life-threatening. He's currently being treated at a local hospital. The rep says the band is in touch with the man's family.

I was right there too, he fell right next to me, i turned around and all i could see was a pool of blood coming out of his head. I thought he was for sure dead. I barely slept last night, so scary

He probably just wanted to end it, realizing he became a friend of their's and also having to endure their horrid music.

Ha ha ha.... Anyone who actually likes this crappy band of posers deserves to fall on their head. Maybe he'll get turned on to some GOOD music while in the hospital.

I know its their "thing" but seeing 3 40+ year olds still dressing like that is pretty ridiculous.

If he was such a dear friend of the band, why did he have such a crummy seat?
