A Blink-182 concert in Hollywood on Thursday night was marred by drama after a fan fell from a balcony.

The group was performing onstage at the Hollywood Palladium when a gig-goer, believed to be a friend of the group's, tumbled over a second-storey balcony railing and landed on his head.

The Red Bull Soundstage is a small room only fit for a few hundred people, allowing for an intimate musical atmosphere that most fans will never get the experience. Ever since the dinky office space was transformed into a rocking s...
