    Default Ever been to a Rage show?

    My friend told me that sometimes the shows are tear-gassed. I've never been to a Rage show, but I don't think that would happen. Does anyone think it might?

    That was back in 2000 at the Democratic National Convention. Riot police came in with tear gas. Cops on horses, rubber bullet guns.. It was insane.. But that will not happen at Coachella...

    That was after their show.

    They were finished and left the stage.

    Ozomatli was on stage when someone started a fire and the craziness ensued.

    ..yeah, I don't think rage had too much to do with that riot in a direct sense. in fact, it was probably a full hour later that the police pulled the plug on ozomatli's set.

    I was over by the fence closest to the Staples Center..where the "anarchists" were breaking up parking blocks and hurling huge chunks of concrete over the fence at the police. I thought that was a very different situation than anything directly-related to the rage show.

    Been to a few shows...never been tear-gassed.

    However, I went to one of the Grand Olympic dates and when the show let out we were greeted by LAPD in full riot gear. Everyone was kind of...WTF?

    I wouldn't be surprised if there were a sudden "surge" of security leading up to Rage's performance on Sunday.

    I saw rage when I was like 15 years old. Back then I didn't go into pits so I got a good view from above of it. And it was to this day the crazyest pit I have ever seen.

    The whole bottom section all the way around the place rushed the floor. Packed to the brim and the pit was everywhere. It even went around the soundboards in the back of the floor. All out crazyness.

    Now that I'm 21 I'm pumped to be able to get in on the crazyness.

    No! Hell no! I saw them in 96, and although the crowd went ape-s#!t, NO ONE WAS RIOTING! I'm kind of getting sick of all the rumors that rage fan is somewhat violent! We are for the most part very peaceful. There will always be a couple of numbskulls acting up, but we will keep a close eye on them. Do not worry! Enjoy the best rock show you will ever see, and do not worry about a riot. Coachella fan's are amazingly peaceful, and we keep nonsense in check.

    i remember, i think it was woodstock '99 when a "riot" ensued, though not directly connected to RATM...

    people were worried that the same type of thing would happen at the first coachella

    anyone remember how the whole debacle started at that woodstock?

    well, the riots started on the last day and I believe RATM played on day 2. The whole debacle was because they decided the best place for a festival in the middle of the summer was on a few square miles of concrete, they charged $4 for a bottle of water, the camp grounds were fucking putrid, the port-o-johns were barely ever cleaned up and about half the crowd were stupid fucking meatheads. And the other thing was that the promoters thought it was a good idea to give out candles. They asked for it.

    Considering that Morello tabbed this performance as the "knockout blow" to Bush, I guarantee that the cops will be ready in full riot gear. It would be an act of sheer stupidity for them not to be ready. I would estimate that there's about a 50-50 chance a riot happens.

    Heck, when I saw RHCP at the Las Vegas bicentennial in 2005, the cops were on horses and in riot gear. That was the friggin RHCP, imagine the steamin Coachella crowd after nearly 7 years of not seeing RATM!!!

    Here's to hopin' everything ends peaceful, but I'm getting the heck out if the cops deploy.

    ...I've seen rage 10 times between '93 and the DNC. there are always some meatheads who would just as soon be thrilled to be at a limp bizkit show....

    ...on the whole though, the crowds have always been really cool, high energy and positive. I think rage is gonna set off the main stage field like nothing that has ever been seen at Coachella before......so it's gonna be intense (to put it mildly) but not full of tension....

    I think you'll all be pleasantly surprised by how calm and uneventful the audience will be for RATM.

    Riots?

    I've seen them twice and it was chaos both times. The first time was complet irony as their fans filled the air with blood sweat and dirt as they kicked the crap out of eachother during the Tibetin Freedom Concert in Wisconsin. I thought it was pretty disturbing seeing teens getting carried out of the pit. The second time I saw them was at the Aragon Ball Room in Chicago and I lasted less than 30 seconds in that crowd before I headed straight to the back. Bad vibe, scary dangerous people. Now, alone on my CD player i love rage, i love to work out to rage and I love to sing along to rage. I don't like people fucking pushing me and slam dancing into me when I have no interest in participating and I am minding my own business. I will watch from the way back and hopefull enjoy.

    I saw them when I was 13 in 1999 at Cox Arena at SDSU. They were touring their Battle of LA album and ignited the place. It was amazing.
