ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – The I Heart Radio Festival airs tonight on KPLR after NEWS11 at seven.  In Monday’s Patrick’s People, Patrick Clark introduces us to a woman who saw it all first hand.

Carrie Schwartz was there when green day had a not so great day.

I was more shocked than anything.  I think the whole audience was in shock.

Schwartz snagged tickets to the I Heart Radio Festival after winning a contest through her employer, Clear Channel.
She went to Vegas for the two day, 25 band festival two weeks ago when green day lead singer Billy Joe Armstrong smashed his guitar after their set was cut short.

Usher ran a little cause I think he was trying to send out a message of everybody trying to help everybody.  So they got out there and their second song and I think he looked up and he saw the screen.

And that’s when the hits stopped and the tantrum began in a video that’s making its way around the internet.

And it said one minute and I think that’s what upset him because I think they had planned on playing for 45 like everyone else.  But I think it got cut down for trying to keep it on track.

And the tracks from artists like Taylor Swift and Bon Jovi had everybody back on their feet after the meltdown.

I mean there’s like two minutes between acts.  There’s a stage that does a turn, they’re ready to go.  Then they had surprise guests like Brittany and Prince.  There were people who weren’t even supposed to be there showed up so that made it cool.

And you can bet she’ll be watching for herself on tonight’s show.

I will.  Maybe I’ll see myself.  Ha Ha Ha.  I like to be on TV.  Well, hey here we go.

And you can watch too, just keep an eye out for the Carrie and a smashed up guitar.

About FOX 2 News

FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. There are over 68 hours of live news and local programming on-air each week. Our website and live video streams operate 24/7. Download our apps for alerts and follow us on social media for updates in your feed.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
