the station nightclub

from great white posted in music by nevereatshreddedwheat

Former location of the Station nightclub in Rhode Island which went up in flames on February 20, 2003 during a Great White concert, killing 100 people (including Great White's guitarist at the time Ty Longley) and injuring over 200 after some pyrotechnics ignited sound insulation foam behind the stage.

There is a ten minute video of the incident online, but it's unnerving so I'll let you search for it yourself if you want to watch that sort of thing.
