Chance The Rapper Show Ends With More Than 90 Fans Hospitalized
Nearly 100 concertgoers were taken to the hospital for severe intoxication due to alcohol consumption following a show Chance The Rapper headlined in Connecticut on Friday (July 21).
Chano was performing at Hot 93.7′s Hot Jam concert at Xfinity Theatre in Hartford, Conn., when some of the people in the crowd of 21,000 got a little too lit. Apparently, many of the people who were taking the lituation to the max were underage. Several people were arrested and Hartford police made 50 underage drinking referrals, reports DailyMail.
Deputy Chief Brian Foley, an officer on the scene, reported on the violations from his Twitter page warning parents about the illegal activity. "Parents: Did you drop your teen off at the concert tonight. This is what it looks like. & HPD is enforcing underage drinking in the lots," he captioned a video of the crowd.
Luckily, there were no deaths reported. 2017 XXL Freshmen Kyle and PnB Rock also performed at the show.
In other festival-related news, Chance has been announced as the headliner for the 2017 Day N Night Festival, along with Kendrick Lamar and Travis Scott. The September fest is full of other dope acts as well including 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert, Russ, Playboi Carti, Famous Dex, Kodak Black, PnB Rock, $UICIDEBOY$, Taylor Bennett, Jay IDK, Pouya, Metro Boomin, SZA, Saba, Rich Chigga, Earl Sweatshirt and more. Hopefully people will drink a bit more responsibly at this event.
