According to reports, numerous people were treated for alcohol-related illnesses after the country singer's show Saturday night. While that might seem like usual concert-going activity, at least 46 people were treated at this particular show, and 50 were taken in by the police for illegal activity. Not normal.
"Last evening's Keith Urban concert was not anticipated to present with the volume of issues handled, but measures were in place to provide appropriate and adequate care and protection to all patrons," Mansfield, Massachusetts Fire Chief Neal Boldrighini and Police Chief Ronald Sellon said in a joint statement.
Things were so crazy at Keith's show that officials had to activate a "phase one EMS plan." That meant ambulances from five surrounding cities responded to the incident. According to LiveNation, approximately 18,000 people were at the concert.
The American Idol judge didn't respond to the crazyness yet, but he did post a video to his fans shortly after the show. "What a great night tonight, I always want to say Boston but we technically were in Mansfield tonight, but it was killer. So everybody from Massachusetts who came out, we had folks traveling everywhere to come to the show tonight, thank you very much," he said before hinting at the chaos.
"Gosh, up on the lawn tonight, that was nutso, it was so cool. Anyway if you came tonight, thank you for giving us all the love and energy. It's been an amazing weekend and we're just getting started on this Raise 'Em Up tour so thank you for making it so special. Boston strong, I love you."
All of this comes after Luke fans caused an uproar at his show in Pittsburgh a few weeks ago. They reportedly trashed the city, and alcohol played a huge factor in that.
These actions are wanting many to ban booze at country music concerts. What do you think about that?
