A party to celebrate clothing giant Diesel's 30th anniversary was almost spoiled by an over enthusiastic crowd on Saturday night (11Oct08).
Rapper T.I., M.I.A., Pharrell Williams and Hot Chip performed at a concert on behalf of the fashion house in New York when the fire department was called to control the crowds.
Fans climbed onto balconies to view the huge tent on the East River waterfront in Brooklyn, where stars including T.I. teamed up for an unusual collaboration with Franz Ferdinand, and Hot Chip were joined by Chaka Khan to duet on some of her hits.
The New York Fire Department was called to the scene to prevent overcrowding on the balconies, and the gig organisers were able to continue with the show without any further problems.
Diesel has been celebrating its landmark birthday with a succession of parties spanning 17 cities across the world.
