29 Hospitalized at Avicii Concert in Toronto


An Avicii concert in Toronto had serious repercussions for some fans of bass dropping, when 29 people in attendance were hospitalized. Per CTV News:

Alcohol or drug use sent 29 people to hospital with various degrees of illness on Saturday night after an Avicii concert at Toronto’s Rogers Centre.

Rogers Centre had its own medics for the sold out, all-ages electronic dance concert and EMS was not on standby, paramedics said. But staff at the 20,000-seat venue quickly became “overwhelmed” by the number of sick patrons, and that’s when they called EMS to take over, paramedics said.

Either there was some bad Molly going around Canada (Damn you, Rob Ford!) or kids these days don’t know how to properly hydrate before taking drugs and dancing. Always hydrate. Always. HAVE YOU NOT SEEN BAD BOYS II???

All are expected to be okay, although many may remain “tapped in” to the “EDM scene.”
