There was a fight in the audience during the Magic Tour at Stone Castle, Dublin on 07/05/1986 it didnt come to much its available on the bootleg, Freddie shouts a few words of comfort and the show carried on as normal

Thats the only one i know of, there may have been others

Way back in the early days, Queen played at Stirling University in Scotland and a fan was stabbed to death in the audience.

I thought someone died at Slane?

And Stirling was a mini-riot after Queen refused to do a fifth encore. Allegedly.

You can hear a fair amount of arguing on Paris 86 I think.

Sadly a Status Quo fan died at the Knebworth show. I think he was stabbed.

I dont know what they were arguing about, but because the crowd was so tightly packed it took along time for the ambulance crew to reach him. Im not quite sure if they caught the person who did it, hope they did though.

I read about quite a few riots at Queen gigs in the early days.

Wow...a 5th encore? I'm trying to think...I was at once show that did 2 encores...but I can't remember who it was. Most all I've seen have been one...if at all. Queen really knew how to put on a show.

Well, here are some details:
Knebworth 86 a man got killed when he was taken down by a knife cut. Also during this show a woman gave birth to he kid.

Frankfurt 82 fight freddie mentions "hey no fighting here" you can hear it on the bootleg tapes.

Slane Castle 86 , fight and the crowd keeps on pushing forward so the first rows gets crushed, Queen stops playing indeed, a film footage (video 8) excists

Well hope this helps you out, now don''t start a fight of your own okay?
