Phish’s reunion show at New York’s Jones Beach theater on Wednesday night was marred by the hospitalization of a fan who fell from a balcony at the venue.

The unidentified man plummeted 25 feet (7.62 meters) to the floor of the theater during the band’s set.

Eyewitnesses claim the shirtless fan fell headfirst over a railing.

He suffered head trauma and has been listed in critical condition at Nassau University Medical Center. No one else was injured.
