'Medical issues' hospitalize Boston concertgoers

BOSTON (AP) — Boston emergency medical authorities say many people who attended an electronic dance music show featuring Swedish disc jockey Avicii (ah-VEE'-chee) at the TD Garden arena showed up intoxicated and several have been hospitalized.

TD Garden spokeswoman Tricia McCorkle says at Wednesday night's Avicii concert "there were a number of transports due to medical issues."

Emergency Medical Service Deputy Superintendent Mike Bosse tells the Boston Herald that EMS took 22 people to the hospital and a dozen more were under evaluation. He says he contacted the Boston Police Licensing Division, which cited the TD Garden for allowing lots of intoxicated concertgoers to enter.

A spokeswoman for Avicii hasn't returned an email seeking comment.
