Hubbub at the Royal Concertgebouw

A man took the podium unexpectedly and began speaking to the audience during Saturday evening's concert at Amsterdam's Concertgebouw - a concert also attended by the Netherlands' Queen Beatrix and Amsterdam's former mayor, according to a post on Chloe Veltman's Lies Like Truth blog. Veltman said the eye-witness reports she has received characterize the severity of the event differently, but one concertgoer wrote in an e-mail that the man appeared on stage and began speaking into a microphone, telling the audience he did not have a bomb. Some of the orchestra's musicians allegedly left the stage. Read more: Breaking News: All Hell Breaks Loose At Concertgebouw (Lies like Truth)
