Keith Urban Concert Goers Party Too Hard & End Up Hospitalized

Keith Urban

It seems that drunken parties and country concerts go hand in hand these days, even at Keith Urban concert. At his ‘Raise ‘em Up’ tour stop at the Xfinity Center in Massachusetts Saturday where 22 wound up hospitalized and 50 were taken into custody.

Last evening’s Keith Urban concert was not anticipated to present with the volume of issues handled, but measures were in place to provide appropriate and adequate care and protection to all patrons. As a result, although there was a higher than expected volume, appropriate care was available through the expandable model,” Mansfield Police Chief Ron Sellon and Fire Chief Neil Boldrighini said in a joint statement today.

In total, Fire and EMS attended to 46 medicals resulting in 22 transports mostly alcohol-related,” Sellon and Boldrighini said. “The large number of medicals in a shortened time of approximately three hours caused the activation of a phase one EMS plan utilizing ambulances from five mutual aid communities. Police dealt with a steady stream of intoxicated persons as well, resulting in over 50 people being taken into protective custody and a number of others arrested for alcohol-related issues.”

So, those that think a country concert is subdued…think again. Apparently it doesn’t just follow the Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean concerts…

Ben Folds is hoping to save a studio that has been sold to a developer. Ben has written an open letter in The Tennessean in favor of preserving RCA Studio A, which was built by Chet Atkins and Owen Bradley in 1965. Ben says he has leased the studio for the past 12 years and spent more than a million dollars in rent and upgrades. He does not know the developer’s plans for the studio.

He is asking for the new owners to stand in silence there and feel the history of the place before making any decisions about it.

“I only want to make music in this historic space, and allow others to do the same.”

Besides Folds, artists who have recorded there include Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, The Beach Boys, Lionel Richie, Bob Seger and Willie Nelson.

“My simple request is for Tim Reynolds or whoever the next owners might be of this property, before deciding what to do with this space, to take a moment to stand in silence between the grand walls of RCA Studio A and feel the history and the echoes of the Nashville that changed the world,”
