A riotous performance by veteran British band The Fall saw legendary London music venue the Hammersmith Palais close its doors for the last time yesterday (01APR07). During the incident-packed gig, some audience members took offence at frontman Mark E Smith's refusal to acknowledge the venue's closure, and mayhem ensued as angry concertgoers invaded the stage in protest. The final encore of the hour-long show was cut short after security bundled the troublemakers offstage and fans tried to pull down light fittings as souvenirs.
