Hollywood Bowl Blaze Draws Three Fire Companies, But Venue Unharmed

A fire in a small cluster of palm trees outside the Hollywood Bowl greeted exiting customers Saturday night.

Three fire companies responded to the blaze, which erupted as attendees existed the Bowl’s “Sing-A-Long Sound of Music” program. The venue was unharmed and no injuries were reported.

No cause of the fire has been released. The Los Angeles Fire Dept. downplayed the incident.

Post Malone Injured In Concert Stage Fall, Returns To Finish Show After Brief Delay

Singer Post Malone suffered apparent injuries to his ribs Saturday night after taking a hard fall on stage during a show in St. Louis.

Malone was performing “circles” when he tripped on an uncovered hole in the stage that was used to lower equipment. He laid on the stage for several minutes after the fall as medics assisted him. He eventually stood and was helped off the stage, but told the crowd he would return.

After a 15-minute delay, he came back and resumed with an abbreviated set, holding his ribs and visibly wincing at times.

The tour has just started for Post Malone, with dates planned tonight through the middle of November. No statements on his condition or the status of those shows has been issued as of yet.
