Gum-Chewer Disrupts Symphony

The Washington Post claims a brawl recently broke out at a Swedish symphony performance after a woman loudly unwrapped a pack of gum. The man seated next to her grabbed the gum and tossed it to the ground before she slapped him and knocked his glasses off.

The concert venue’s Twitter page read; “Everyone thinks it’s great to sit on a hockey or soccer game and drink a beer or coffee and have some snacks. The tempo is high and [so is] the volume, so you do not disturb anyone. However, in a concert hall with world-class acoustics, it is not suitable to bring rustling bags of crisps.”
