A PAPA ROACH fan is recovering in hospital after impaling his thigh on an inch-think spike while trying to climb a 12-foot iron fence to gain access to the Bad Boys of Rock concert in Pennsylvania.
Firefighters had to cut part of the fence away as the unnamed rock fan fell in and out of consciousness at the York concert on Wednesday (11Sep07), which also featured performances by Hinder and Buckcherry.
The fan underwent surgery on Wednesday night, according to rock website Blabbermouth.net.
According to reports, the man had a concert ticket but chose to try and clamber over the fence to avoid a $5 (GBP2.50) entry fee.
