Several Avicii concertgoers hospitalized

At least 20 people attending the Avicii concert at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport Tuesday night were taken to the hospital after they were found either intoxicated or unresponsive, based on emergency dispatches.

Bridgeport police said they have a detail at the arena, but didn’t say if any arrests were made.

The concertgoers, whose ages ranged from 15-late 20s, were taken to Bridgeport Hospital and St. Vincent’s Medical Center.

Avicii, is a Grammy-nominated electronic musician from Sweden.

Ilario Altamura, co-promoter of the event, said Avicii is one of the first major electronic acts to play in southwestern Connecticut.

“The popularity of electronic music has exploded around the world and we are absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to bring a global talent like Avicii to our region,” Ilario, who is the co-founder of Midnite Society, a concert promoter, said. “This will be the first of many large-scale events of this kind in Connecticut.”
