Dozens hospitalised at Keith Urban gig
Dozens of fans were hospitalised at a Keith Urban gig in Massachusetts on Saturday night.

Some 46 gig-goers were treated at the Australian country singer and American Idol judge’s show at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield over the weekend (July 26), with 22 being transported to hospitals in the local area.

According to Reuters a joint statement issued by the town’s police and fire departments said that authorities called in ambulances from five nearby communities to deal with the crowd’s medical needs. More than 50 people were taken into protective custody by police for what was described in the statement as “alcohol related issues”.
