Now you know why mom used to say "Walk! Don’t run!" Five people were injured at a No Doubt concert when a crowd of 4,000 fans rushed the stage, crushing some of them against the railing. The incident took place at the Mesa Amphitheater in Mesa, Ariz., where the Orange County ska band was performing.

Three of the injured were taken to a nearby hospital and treated. None of the injuries were serious.

SINGING ‘SOPRANO’: He may be a "Soprano" on TV, but this Mob boss is really a tenor.

Dominic Chianese, who plays Corrado "Uncle Junior" Soprano on the HBO hit series, not only loves acting but apparently also has a knack for singing, too. The actor was recently in a Franklin, Tenn., studio recording his first album.

The project, which was recorded with studio musicians, includes standards such as "Ramona" and "For the Good Times," Dino Elefante, co-owner of The Sound Kitchen, told The Associated Press. Three of the songs are also Chianese originals.

A release date for the album is pending while Chianese shops for a record label.

J.C. Chasez of ’N Sync ROCKIN’ IN RIO: ’N Sync and Britney Spears are heading south, far south, to perform in Brazil’s third annual Rock in Rio for a Better World.

Spears and boyband members Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, J.C. Chasez, Lance Bass and Justin Timberlake will fly to Rio de Janeiro early next year for the weeklong music fest, which kicks off Jan. 12.

Organizers are expecting 1.5 million people for the weeklong celebration. Tickets go on sale in October.
