Stabbing at Tenacious D Show in Las Vegas


In what appears to be a growing trend of unexplainable behavior around the country, there was a stabbing at a Tenacious D show in Las Vegas this past Saturday night.  According to reports, a fight erupted between two men that led to one person being stabbed in the leg.  The concert, which took place at the House of Blues in the Mandalay Bay Resorts, was put to an end immediately.  However, Jack Black and Kyle Glass came back out to play “Tribute”, but not before Black commented “This is no joke. Due to a serious situation, we're shutting it down. We can only play one more song, but we're gonna rock it out”.  According to eyewitnesses, there was an enormous amount of blood near at the bar right near the stage.

So, let’s get this straight…you now have to be worried about going to movies, concerts, and basically anything that involves being in a public forum, in which you would like to enjoy life?  This was a COMEDIC-rock show.  People are there for laughs, to have a good time, to get away from their jobs and responsibilities, if only for a little while.   It’s anybody’s guess what the initial altercation was over.  More than likely it was over something completely inane like:

a)      Blocking someone’s view

b)      A spilled beer

c)      Overall public drunkenness/lewdness

d)     Inability to act like an adult

e)      All of the above

Whatever the reason for the fight, it’s safe to say that it was completely unnecessary.  Now someone has been stabbed in the leg, and had to be rushed to the hospital, and 1,498 people had to have their night ruined, and money wasted because two people couldn’t handle their bullshit like adults.  Brilliant!

Note To Everyone:  When you are out in public, please learn how to act like a human being.  Respect others, be kind, and practice the golden rule.  It will go a long way, and everyone will be able to enjoy their night.  Thank you.
