Live Nation Sued By Fans Who Were Injured at Future Concert

January 4, 2018 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Two fans have filed a lawsuit against Live Nation over injuries they allegedly suffered during a stampede at a Future concert last year. TMZ reports that Catrina Washington and Shauntay Harris have each filed separate lawsuits against both Live Nation and the Barclays Center over the injuries, which occurred at the rappers May, 2017 concert.

Both plaintiffs say in their lawsuits that fireworks were used during the performance that caused a panic, which allegedly led to the stampede as some people thought gunshots had gone off. TMZ reports that the NYPD had said at the time that the stage had been lowered too quickly at the end of the show and the loud metal-on-metal sound along with the sound of gunshots in one of the final songs caused the panic.

Future has not yet been named, but the suit will be amended to include him. You can see video of the incident below:
