« We had just finished playing, and Pink Floyd equipment was being set up on the other stage (there were two stages in the hall), when the fighting started. It was really frightening as tables which were metal were thrown from upstairs on the balcony down onto the crowd below. Glasses - everything was being thrown. We locked ourselves in the dressing room behind the stage with the band Pink Floyd, and their roadies until the police came and told us it was safe to come out. I will never forget that night. We managed to get out and load our van and leave before all the people came out of the hall - and the police were keeping them away from us. We saw their roadies in Brussels the next day, and they told us that when the band had already left, the police went also so that when they came out there were guys waiting for them. They had to fight to get their equipment in their van. 

When they drove out of the town they all picked up cobble stones (the big stones that were what the roads were made of in the country - I don't know what you call these in French), and then they drove back into town and threw them through the big shop windows. A lot of damage »
