According to the Hollywood Reporter, no fewer than three melees erupted on the floor prior to SUICIDAL TENDENCIES' performance at Los Angeles‘ historic Olympic Auditorium Saturday night (October 29), prompting an announcement that the Mike Muir-fronted band wouldn‘t take the stage unless order was restored. Other acts that performed at the "Waking of the Dead" concert included FLIPPER, MARKY RAMONE, FEAR and THE GERMS. In a fitting close, police in riot gear closed the streets surrounding the Olympic after the show. Read a review of the gig (by former Metal Edge editor Paul Gargano) at Reuters.com.
