A male was stabbed following an on-stage brawl at Tuesday night’s Pusha-T show at Danforth Music Hall and is in critical condition, police say.
The male was at the concert and was stabbed either inside or outside of the venue and collapsed outside. His friends took him to hospital and he underwent surgery overnight. Police are not sure if he was involved in the brawl that broke out on stage.
Several people stormed the stage just after 10 p.m. during the show and a fight broke out. That fight cleared the hall. During the exit, police say, more fights broke out and five people were injured. Paramedics took two of those people to hospital with minor injuries. The other three weren’t seriously injured and left without being treated.
Toronto police confirmed performers were attacked on stage. Rapper Pusha-T was performing but it has not been confirmed if he was one of the people injured.
A tweet was posted to a verified Twitter account that seems to be associated with the rapper (the handle is @PUSHA_T) early Wednesday morning saying “That’s not Pusha-T getting punished on stage.”
Around 1,400 people were in attendance and police were on scene for crowd control.
Danforth Avenue was blocked from Broadview Avenue to Playter Boulevard as police investigated, but it has since reopened.
No one has been taken into custody at this time.
