The Avicii concert on June 25 got way out of hand and now dozens of concertgoers, including minors, are being hospitalized for drug and alcohol abuse. How scary! What was this ‘dangerous substance’ going around the concert that night?

TD Garden: Fans Hospitalized At Avicii Concert
Avicii took the stage of the TD Garden in Boston ready for the start of an amazing tour. The concert was the opening of the DJ’s tour, which starts in eastern United States, travels Europe and then scheduled to end in Spain in September.
However, the show elevated in urgency very quickly. Reportedly, over 50 people were treated at the scene and 36 were taken to local hospitals because of drug and alcohol complications.
“A lot of people who couldn’t handle themselves. People who don’t do drugs come here and do drugs,” concertgoer Mike Santostefano, 19, of Millis, told The Boston Globe.
As of now, it is unknown if the drug Molly was a contributing factor to this mess, whereas, it has been a big issue at past EDM concerts. Michael Bosse, Boston EMS, added, “there may have been some illicit drug involved, but none have been identified.”
Thankfully, there were no fatal injuries from the drugs during this concert. Still very scary!
