Statement from the Boston Symphony Orchestra
"During the first part of the Boston Popsí opening night concert last night, an altercation took place in the second balcony between two audience members.
"House security and Boston police stopped the fight, and the audience members were escorted out of the hall.
"The concert resumed and ended with cheers and a standing ovation.
"It was an unfortunate incident, but thankfully this kind of behavior is truly out of the ordinary at a Boston Pops concert.
"Any further inquiries should be directed to the Boston Police Department."
