Concert-goers, and even Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart, were caught off-guard when a fight broke out on opening night at usually sedate Symphony Hall.
Television video of the fight Wednesday night showed two men struggling in the balcony — one with his shirt pulled off — as several people stood around them.
Lockhart briefly halted the performance, which featured singer-songwriter Ben Folds, while the men were escorted out. (Watch the battle in the balcony )
CNN’s video is better (although you have to go through the usual pop-up window mumbo-jumbo to view it), but here is a down-and-dirty cameraphone video of the same incident from the audience’s perspective:
