All groups inc queen have fall outs from time to time. I like to think that if they had fallen out backstage before a show they would have been professional about things and appeared normal to an audience. Has anyone any evidence that says otherwise? Iv seen most of the live footage available and cant recolect a show with a bad atmosphere.
...throwing a bass-guitar during Knebworth...not the classic sign for good atmoshere, but maybe he just was unsatisfied with that piece wood.

could be a reson why you never see them falling out ;)
There's the classic story about the Eagles in 1979 on stage saying how they're going to beat the shit out of each other after the gig..
Rick Wakeman ate curry on stage while Yes were performing Tales From Topographic Oceans in its entirety. He left the band shortly afterward.
There's gotta be more..
Well if you google Oasis.......... you'll find plenty.
I believe a few minutes before they were set to play MTV unplugged... Liam decided he wasn't going out there. Noel took his place as lead singer while his brother watched (heckled!) them from the balcony.
Joe Perry "pushed" Steven Tyler off the stage in a more recent show. It was played down as a playful joke - but he was actually thrown off the stage...! There had to be more to that.
My former boss saw Steven Tyler and Joe Perry get into it onstage back in the 70's. Either in Providence or Worcester, Massachusetts. There was as story of how Roger and Brian got into a fight backstage in the early or mid-70's and one of them used a can of hairspray on the other. Something like that.
and nothing spells conflict like Blackmore vs Gillan
the '93 tour is a perfect case to point, and although most of the rows were pre/post shows (dressing room stuff) the NEC gig was (rumoured to be) scene of one of their biggest scraps - with Blackers not surfacing until the solo for the opening number Highway Star. ....and before the song is finished - a jug of water leaves Blackmore's hand aimed at (depending upon whose side of the story you believe) either the camerman or Gillan.
Blackmore quit the band a week later.
and these aren't isolated cases - "cross incident" "elevator incident" and "spaghetti incident" are well documented alongside the "jug of water incident"
not forgetting "smash glover's door with an axe incident" - gotta love Blackers
I wished I was a fly on the wall in New Zealand in 1985 when Tony Hadley was a bad influence on Freddie. LOL
The 1st and 2nd links from renowned QZ'ers give an excellent overview of the concert
A fan describes his experience at the concert in the 3rd link.
Hadley provides his recollection of the day in the 4th link.
Spike had a delicious story to tell in the 5th link.
The last link describes a group interview before the concert when Freddie was already drunk.
The last link also mentions Brian giving a dedication to John and his Porsche ... link link link link link link
Pink Floyd In The Flesh Tour, (Animals) there was huge tension between Waters and Gilmour. During one of the last shows Gilmour walked off stage and refused to return leaving Snowy White (on tour second guitar) to fill in.
Years ago I had a bootleg from Fleetwood Mac's Tusk tour, during band introductions when Stevie Nicks is introduced, Lindsey Buckingham clearly says I wonder where she's going tonight, to which she says I don't think I'm going to do the next song, but Buckingham plays the intro anyway, I don't recall what song it was or what venue it was from.
