Drama unfolded as fire broke out during a Rihanna concert. The stadium staff desperately tried to extinguish the blaze above the stage.
Fans were stunned as sparks and debris dropped onto the stage. The flames sent a huge cloud of smoke into the rafters. One fan clutched a t-shirt to his face to shield himself from the smoke.
The drama is a chilling echo of the deadly blaze at a 2003 concert in Providence, Rhode Island, where 100 people lost their lives after a pyrotechnics display went disastrously wrong.
Fortunately, no one in Dallas was injured. Rihanna tweeted, "Glad you guys are safe...Heading into a production meeting to find out exactly what happened."
