Fred again.. Ascends at the LA Memorial Coliseum, Dancing Fans Rush the Stage

When Fred again.. announced his first-ever stadium show, everyone knew he would deliver a blissful barrage of summer moments to share with friends. But few could have expected such a massive success, even by the British superstar's lofty standards.

Friday's event at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was proof of just how much his fans have grown to love him too. Despite the fanfare of his debut stadium gig—and an almost sold out one at that—it was packed with intimate moments.

Under the Memorial Coliseum's lights and plumes of mythic smoke, Fred appeared and reappeared in different locations throughout the arena. Throughout the evening's countless "one-time at Fred again.." moments, more than 100,000 people were whisked away by his pensive sound.

He even suddenly materialized in the stands to serenade attendees up-close in the cheap seats, like when he and Obongjayar performed their fan-favorite collaboration "adore u."

Some, however, got a little too excited. Near the end of the evening, a torrent of fans found their way onto an elevated catwalk that lined the inside circumference of the stadium. Floorboards cracked under the weight of so many while Fred geared up for a firework-laden climax.

Seeing the danger present, the venue's safety crew sprung into action and brought the show to a sudden stop. A buzzkill for sure, but it may have saved more than a few lives as the catwalk, which clearly was not designed to hold so many, was visibly collapsing away from its scaffolding when the smoke cleared. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.

It was a rare moment that revealed the caliber of the safety crew kept at the ready by the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. It also showcased the admriation and respect Fred again.. has for his ride-or-die fans.

And even though it seemed like a bit of a downer at the time the music had to be halted, it's likely a memory that those fans will be telling their friends about for a long, long time.
