August 20, 1988

Aug20On this day in 1988, at the Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington in England, two fans were brutally crushed to death during a Guns N’ Roses set.

Frontman Axl Rose pleaded with the crowd: “Don’t fucking kill each other.”

With the wet ground and a record crowd of more than 110,000 people at the festival, the surge of bodies was just too much.
