WAIT FOR THE CURE LEADS TO HOSPITALISATION: Almost fifty people wound up being taken to hospital, with a couple of hundred more needing medical treatment, after an all-day festival at Washington's RFK stadium. The all-dayer featured The Cure, The Offspring, Papa Roach and the Violent Femmes and took place in ridiculous heat, which wasn't entirely helped by the over-the-top moshpit. Emergency services say amongst those carted off to the ER were several with broken bones and one guy with "chest pains". For our part, we're just trying not to picture the mosh pit during Papa Roach: temperatures in the hundreds, all those nu-metal fans with their shirts off... it would have been like a catering tub of Virgin Sweat Soup.
