For the second time in three years, there have been crowd control problems at San Diego's StreetFest. In 2004, festival goers were hurt when the brush barriers gave way during AFI's headline set; this year, a surge amongst the audience of 37,000 left 15 people in hospital. The crush came during Tool's topping off of the day:

Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan repeatedly tried to control the situation as the throng of 37,000 fans pushed toward the stage, the newspaper said.

"Step back so you don't get trampled," he said at one point. "It's just rock."

And Tool, at that.
