After Avicii’s own hiatus at the beginning of the year, this concert was the kickoff for his eastern USA and European tour until the end of September. Those in attendance told the Globe that “You get really hot in there and you just pass out. You couldn’t breathe. It was claustrophobic. People get dehydrated.” Boston EMS started receiving calls at 8:30 p.m. and arrived on the scene. The show was scheduled to end at 11 p.m.
This event mirrors Zedd’s own Boston travesty, last August, during the opening of his “Moment of Clarity” tour at the House of Blues. Three people were taken to the hospital, with one female pronounced dead. Avicii took to his Twitter account:
Just hearing the awful news abt tonight. Its a terrible thing, I rly hope everyone is ok! My thoughts go to those affected & their families. — Tim Bergling (@Avicii) June 26, 2014
