Classical music concert in Sweden descends into brawl over rustling chewing gum packet

A classical music concert in Sweden ended in farce after a fight broke out over a rustling packet of chewing gum.

One audience member became so distracted by a woman next to him opening a new packet of gum that he grabbed it from her and threw it to the floor.

In retaliation the woman, after calmly waiting more than an hour for the orchestra to finish its performance, slapped the man in the face, sparking a full on brawl between the pair.

The Sydsvenskan newspaper reported that the fight, which occurred at a concert in Malmo, Sweden’s third-largest city, where the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra was performing Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 5.

One witness told the newspaper that the rustling became unbearable during a particularly quiet part of the musical piece.

“When the applause broke out [at the end of the concert] the woman turned towards the man and said something,” Britt Aspenlind, who was sitting two rows behind the pair, told Sydsvenskan. “The woman gave the younger man a slap right in his face. He became angry and started fighting back.”

The blow was strong enough to knock the man’s glasses off, other witnesses reported. To add insult to injury, a companion of the woman who had been eating the gum then began hurling punches at the man as well.
