Today in Music: August 9, 2010

On this date in 1986, Queen played their last ever concert, appearing at Knebworth Park in England to a sold-out crowd of over 120,000.

In 1994, Oasis abruptly end a concert in Newcastle, England after guitarist Noel Gallagher is attacked onstage by a fan. Angry fans then attack the band's bus as it leaves the venue.

Jerry Garcia dies of a heart attack on this date in 1995.

In 2005, Marc Cohn is shot in the head by a man trying to carjack his tour fan. Amazingly, the bullet does not enter Cohn's skull, leaving the singer with only a flesh wound and some bruising.
