June 30, 2022 | 7:39am ET

Several men and at least one women were escorted out of the Diamond VIP section of The Eagles concert at London’s Hyde Park after a brawl broke out during a performance of “Take It Easy.”

Photos and footage obtained show security guards wrestling two men to the ground during the Jun 26th event, while another guard puts his hands around a man’s neck, and a fourth concert goer is forcibly held back. Later in the video, an irate woman in green is led away. Reportedly, an onlooker kept telling the fighters, “You’ve got to take it easy,” and he didn’t even get punched.

Diamond VIPs paid a minimum of £399, or over $485. According to a venue website, the package offers separate bathrooms, a “dedicated premium standing viewing area in front of the stage with unrivaled views of all the Great Oak Stage performances,” and access to plenty of bars, which may have played a role in the skirmish.

In the footage, several of the combatants can be seen gesturing in the direction of the others, seemingly placing the blame elsewhere. If the security guards couldn’t suss it out, perhaps The Eagles could be called upon to see who has “Lying Eyes.” Or perhaps not — like most of the crowd, the band ignored the fight and kept on playing the concert.

Years ago I saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band live with my mom and sister and we got seats on the floor. Now I’ve been to a ton of shows and festivals, and I had never seen so many drunken fights break out around me at a show. It was wild, and hilarious. And they sounded amazing.

u/_testingthewaters_ Jun 30 '22

I really don't get this meme, all other cuisine is weak as shit compared to British in the spice department, the spiciest meal in the world the Phall was developed in the UK to suit the British palette.

And if you say 'waaah that's Indian' then you can't claim tex-mex or cajun as American. British-Indian is it's own thing, how come yanks are allowed to have immigrant influence on their cuisinse but we aren't?

Surely it must be yanks that have never left their state that say this?

u/McGregor_Tears Jun 30 '22

Laughs in all the top rated restaurants in London being Parisian cuisine.

The sun set, get over it.

Weak stomached yanks smh, biggest pussies going.

u/McGregor_Tears Jun 30 '22

Phall ain't shit but colonized cuisine turned into stunt food.

Stay mad, but try and cry about it in private.

Or don't, but I'm not reading it.

u/_testingthewaters_ Jun 30 '22

AIght, tex-mex aint shit but colonised cuisine.

Stay mad, but try and cry about it in private

Or don't, but I'm not reading it.

Yanks are so sensitive lmao, it's so pathetic. Weak.

At least we have spicy food unlike you.

An immigrant is not the same as a subject.

Ya'll enslaved half the world and stole their food.

If you remove Tex mex and Cajun food from American cuisine, you’re left with English food. This “bland Yank food” is your food.

I Can’t Tell You Why, but this New Kid in Town, a wannabe Desperado, decided as The Last Resort, to Take It to the Limit by living his Life in the Fast Lane. Alas, it was just Wasted Time, because in The Long Run, After the Thrill Is Gone, instead of a Peaceful Easy Feeling, he was left with a Heartache Tonight.
