Las Vegas’ Route 91 Harvest country music festival was tragically cut short Sunday night when a gunman opened fire on the crowd, killing 59 people and wounding more than 500 others. The attack took place during the headlining set by Jason Aldean, who later called the events “beyond horrific.”
The incident was the most recent in a long line of attacks and mass killings perpetrated at live events and theaters, from the disorder and death at a Northern California rock festival to the recent bombing of a Manchester, England, pop concert.
OCT. 23, 2002 | Moscow theater hostage crisis
During a sold-out performance of the musical “Nord-Ost,” the Dubrovka Theater was seized by more than 40 armed Chechen separatists, led by Movsar Barayev, who were demanding Russia’s withdrawal from Chechnya. The attackers took 850 hostages and killed two of them after two days. On the fourth day of the standoff, Russian special forces pumped an unidentified chemical gas into the theater’s ventilation system, which ended up killing all of the attackers but also 130 of the hostages.
