A fight broke out in the crowd during a show by Tenacious D in Las Vegas Saturday night and one person was stabbed, the Las Vegas Journal-Review reports.

Find: Stabbings at Swedish House Mafia show

Rock-comedy partners Jack Black and Kyle Gass were about halfway through their set at the 1,500-capacity House of Blues venue in the Mandalay Bay resort when a scuffle erupted between two men in the audience. One person was stabbed in the leg, and eyewitnesses told the Journal-Review that a large pool of blood was left in the bar area near the stage.

The police canceled the rest of the concert and shut down the House of Blues for the night. According to KLAS-TV Las Vegas, the victim was taken to the hospital and a suspect is in police custody.

Why kind of miserable douchewagon do you have to be to be pissed off at a Tenacious D show? It's nearly impossible not to have fun while experiencing the D.

You know I find it kinda stupid how people are using this horrible incident as an excuse to trash jack black and Kyle gass, if you have something against the band that's fine, because its your opinion, but you have to remember that they obviously have some kind of talent even if you dont like it, there are tons of people who do enjoy there music, even if you dont like there music you should still support them and hope they have success with all there endeavors in the future, and joking about how you are so glad someone got stabbed as long as the show ended is just ignorant and stupid, and if this is your view on something like this then you need to seriously grow up.
