What happened is during Running Free Bruce took his knit cap off that he was waring and threw it into the pit. Basically everyone went for it and some people got knocked down. I couldn't tell what exactly happened, but I was told after by my brother who was a little closer to it than I was that somebody got knocked backed and feel against the steel partition that separated the pit from the reserved seats.
I understand people wanting to get it but someone could get hurt bad it they feel wrong onto the barrier. As far as I know the person was not hurt seriously at all during the scramble. But still you never know people have gotten hurt and even died at concerts before. Bruce told everyone to help the person up though before he continued on with introducing the band members, which was very cool of him.
Damn that cap was dripping with sweat you could see it flying everywhere as Bruce took it off and tossed it. I bet that thing is gonna smell bad after awhile
