    BOSTON — Concert-goers, and even Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart, were caught off-guard when a fight broke out on opening night at usually sedate Symphony Hall.

    Television video of the fight Wednesday night showed two men struggling in the balcony — one with his shirt pulled off — as several people stood around them.

    Lockhart briefly halted the performance, which featured singer-songwriter Ben Folds, while the men were escorted out.

    Witnesses said they heard a scream from the balcony, and the sound of chairs falling, then a second scream as the fight escalated.

    “The first time there was a scream, Keith looked up that way but he kept going,” audience member June MacIndoe told Boston's WHDH-TV. “Then about a minute and a half later ... there was a big scream and you could hear chairs falling over and you could see them up there, fists going.”

    At that point, Lockhart stopped the performance for a couple of minutes, she said. “He just stood there, you know, quiet.”

    Boston police spokesman David Estrada said police officers on security detail at the hall escorted the men off the property, and no charges were filed. No injuries were reported, he said.

    And, of course, there's a video. Hard to tell who's who.

    Which one had his shirt off? And do we have pictures?

    A grainy video--sorta like the Zapruder film.

    There'll be a Senate investigation.

    Does FB recognize the authority of the Senate?
