article imageAvicii concert in Toronto sees 29 partying fans taken to hospital

By Marcus Hondro     May 19, 2014 in Entertainment
A concert by the Swedish performer Avicii in Toronto on Saturday was highlighted by at least 29 young concert-goers who had either too much booze or drugs, or both. They were taken to hospital but it appears all of them will be fine.
Emergency Services were called in by concert staff when they realized the numbers were too big, and the kids were too sick, for them to handle. “Unfortunately we've had a few kids (sick)," EMS commander Peter Rotolo told CTV News. "Excessive alcohol and partying and they can’t handle it."
Avicii (real name: Tim Bergling) performed his set before about 20,000 fans at the sold-out Rogers Centre without even knowing there were extreme partying fans being taken to hospital. Ten of the kids became ill before Avicii even took to the stage at 11. Toronto city councilor Giorgio Mammoliti criticized the concert promoter, Ink Entertainment, for making it an all-ages event.
There were no reports of any bad drugs being sold at the electric dance concert but 29 fans having to be transported to hospital is a large number even for a large concert and police are investigating.
