ContactMusic.com is reporting that Los Angeles riot police were called in to intervene at a free AUDIOSLAVE show on Hollywood Boulevard Wednesday night (May 18) when fans broke down barriers and started fighting each other.
Thousands gathered outside the Hollywood + Highland complex to watch the band's street performance for TV show "Jimmy Kimmel Live".
But after waiting for 90 minutes for the supergroup to appear and then facing interruptions as "Kimmel" broke for commercials, the fans became restless.
And when the group started playing "Killing in the Name of" — a hit for several of the bandmembers' former group RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE — the fans became unruly and barriers keeping them apart tumbled.
One bystander says, "It was really frightening. All of a sudden there was this commotion and the riot police arrived. It didn't last long but a lot of people feared that this could have become a much bigger incident.
"It was quite fitting that the gig took place on the eve of the new 'Star Wars' release because these guys looked like stormtroopers."
