It is getting a bit dangerous to go to music concerts, no matter the genre.
Reports broke over the weekend about an alleged rape during Keith Urban's Boston show that was previously named a "Mass Casualty Incident" by Mansfield, MA police, a situation that Urban called in stark contrast to the spirit of our shows."
On Saturday, a 32-year-old man was killed and a 21-year-old man wounded in gunfire outside of a Chicago club where rapper Nas was having an unofficial after show party.
Nas had played the Lollapalooza festival earlier in the day followed by a second show at the House of Blues before moving to the Bodi nightclub on the city's Near North side for a party.
According to the Chicago tribune, police first became involved at about 3:50 AM when they saw a person running from the area of the club. Public Affairs officer Janel Sedevic told them "The officer engaged the subject and, in fear for their lives, one officer discharged his duty weapon at the subject. The subject fled and made good his escape."
The officers then found the two victims, the dead man in a nearby alley and the wounded man in front of the club. Reports from the scene indicated that numerous round had been fired.
