Legendary U.K. punks The Adicts are currently touring the US after playing Punk Rock Bowling over Memorial Day weekend. This past Friday, their set was cut short when fights broke out at the show. According to reports, the crowd was rowdy from the start and began throwing cans and bottles at the band. As members of the crowd rushed the stage to stage dive, they continually interrupted the band’s set and witnesses said the band was visibly agitated. By the end of their shortened set, another fight broke out on stage and the police were called. The Adicts released the following statement on their Facebook page the next day:
“Last night’s gig wasn’t so pleasant due to certain people in the audience throwing beer bottles at us while being on stage….. We’re sorry we had to stop the show but it wasn’t our fault… it was certain people within the crowd that ended up causing trouble for everyone.”

The Adicts last released All the Young Droogs in 2012 through DC-Jam Records.
