One more reason to leave Shooting at the NEC
 
Stewards shot at Kanye West gig

Kanye West's albums are Late Registration and College Dropout
Two stewards have been shot during a concert held by rapper-producer Kanye West at the NEC in the West Midlands.
Police say the shootings took place after people who tried to gain entrance without tickets were escorted from the arena near Birmingham on Tuesday.

The stewards are still being treated but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Detectives have asked for anyone who saw anything unusual at the concert to come forward.

West Midlands Police were called to the NEC Arena just after 2200 GMT on Tuesday.

Officers say that firearms were discharged when those who tried to get in without a ticket were escorted from the premises and they reached the front entrance.

Touch The Sky

The singer from Atlanta, Georgia, made a name for himself in the rap world as a producer, and then launched his own recording career.

He first rose to prominence during the late 90s, when he produced hit albums for Foxy Brown, Beanie Sigel, and Ma$e's Harlem World.

In October 2002, he was nearly killed when he was driving back to his hotel after a recording session, and he was involved in a car accident in Los Angeles. It left him with his jaw fractured in three places.

Kanye West was performing the last night of his five-date Touch The Sky tour in the UK.

A police spokesman said: "This incident involved individuals who had been ejected from the venue for attempting to try to gain entrance to a pop concert without tickets.

"Firearms were discharged and two stewards were taken to hospital with gunshot wounds. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening."

I agree... and here's another one ... it makes your blood boil ...
Mayor in row over parking space
Two of Cheltenham's most prominent politicians have fallen out over a car parking space at the municipal offices. Mayor Brian Chaplin and council leader Andrew McKinley both claim rights to a specific slot behind the building. Mr Chaplin says it is dedicated for the mayor but Mr McKinley says recent changes means any councillor with a permit can park there. The mayor has a space in the front of the offices for the official car. The cabinet will debate the row on Tuesday. A statement from councillor John Morris, the Cabinet member who covers parking, said the mayor did have spaces both at the front and rear of the building until 1 February.
:scared: :D

I was at the Kanye West concert last night. On the way out the police said there was an incident and did we see anything. Got into work this morning and someone told me what happended. The concert went on till about 11.15, so luckily they kept everyone else inside the venue.

He's had the remix treatment, but only because a good west coast USA producer did the job. I predict he'll release another couple of oldies remixed, the first of which will get to about number 10, the second of which might scratch the top 40 and the third of which will appear only on a free CD given away with the Daily Express. :)
