The Prodigy
The band were on stage at the time of the balcony fall

A 24-year-old man was seriously injured after falling from a balcony during a music concert in Dundee.

Tayside police were called to Caird Hall where dance band The Prodigy were playing a sold-out gig.

Ambulance and police attended at 2200 GMT on Friday and the man, from Angus, was taken to Ninewells Hospital, where his condition is described as serious.

It is understood he fell about 15 feet (4.57m). Detectives are investigating if he was pushed or fell accidentally.

The incident happened as the band were on stage.

The gig was part of the group's Run With The Wolves Tour, and was one of a number of sold-out UK dates ahead of a round-the-world tour.

On Saturday night, The Prodigy are due to play at the Corn Exchange in Edinburgh and at the 02 Academy in Glasgow on Sunday.
