Green Bay Cops at Lambeau Stadium gave up trying to count how many people were ejected during the Kenny Chesney-Jason Aldean concert on June 20. Police Lt. David Paral told the Green Bay Press Gazette that it “was nuts.”
In addition to the uncountable ejections, 22 concert-goers were arrested. The arrests were for typical charges such as unlawful conduct at a public event and resisting arrest. Alcohol appears to have been a factor in every single case.
Medical response teams were unable to keep up with injured concert-goers, and lines stretched out the doors. Drunks who passed out, fell over, got into fights, or otherwise hurt themselves made up the majority of the injuries.
Deadspin argues that the drunken and disorderly conduct was undoubtedly motivated by Chesney’s pro-intoxication playlist. The police scanner of the event reads like a bad parody of a drunken party with guests soiling themselves, picking fights, passing out, and abusing women. Deadspin has the full report of the chatter over the scanner.
The 22 arrests come on the heels of a Kenny Chesney concert in Pittsburgh which saw ten concert goers booked in May. That number, of course, is a fraction of the 73 arrests at the 2013 Kenny Chesney concert in Pittsburgh.
The Big Revival Tour continues with dates all throughout the summer.
