Last night, 36 people were taken to a local hospital during Avicii's show at the TD Garden in Boston, according to the Boston Globe. Though the majority of injuries were minor, they were primarily for dehydration, alcohol and drug use. While over 50 people were reportedly treated, 36 people were sent to local hospitals from the venue, and the majority of attendants requiring assistance were between the ages of 16 and 25.
Rolling Stone reached out to McKenzie Ridings, the social media manager for Boston Public Health Commission, who said that a "Level 2 Mass Casualty" incident was declared at last night's show.
This follows a similar incident at Avicii's show in Toronto last month, where 29 people were hospitalized due to drug and alcohol-related use.
A spokesperson for Live Nation released the following statement: "While this is still a developing situation, based on early reports from the venue it appears the majority of the transports were people outside the venue who were too impaired to be allowed inside the venue and access to the concert. Out of an abundance of caution, they were transported for medical evaluation and assistance."
Avicii did weigh in on Twitter, and said "Just hearing the awful news abt tonight. Its a terrible thing, I rly hope everyone is ok! My thoughts go to those affected & their families."
We'll update with more details when they become available.
