Insane Clown Posse sued over tramp incident

ICP spraying Faygo into the crowd at their 2011 Halloween show.

Well,  it wasn’t really a tramp.  It was a trampoline that someone fell into at an Insane Clown Posse concert.  And now, that someone is suing ICP for an amount greater than $75,000 in damages.

When I was younger, I went to tons of live shows.  If I had ever injured myself on something used by my favorite artist, that injury would be a prized possession, not grounds for a lawsuit.

For example, one of my friends always talks about how he was almost killed by a lightning  strike at a Free Tibet concert.  He didn’t sue.  He just talks about his near-death experience relentlessly.  That is how fans handled their misfortune back in the day.

If your drinking Faygo, painting your face and jumping up on a stage with seventy-five others to throw soda bottles into the crowd for something called “Faygo Armageddon,” you are assuming the risk.

A copy of the complaint is at this link.

  1. Did this fan see what happened to Tila Teqila at an ICP show? This incident isn’t anything like the Great White fire. I am not that sympathetic to this guy’s plight either.

  2. You know, I’ve got a friend who was nearly crushed by Heavy D when D tried to crowd surf at a concert. Instead of moving in to catch him, everyone seemed to get scared and move away- Leaving my buddy on his own. A couple of guys moved in at the last second, keeping D from getting injured and my buddy from being crushed.

    Think he could have sued? Probably- And he probably would have had a better case than this douche. He didn’t though… He just laughs about the thoughts that went through his mind as Heavy D was coming at him: “Oh, my God, that’s a lot of man!”
