It seems like this could happen anywhere when capacity limits aren't enforced. I know there were some people who broke into the concert, you could see them storming thru the metal detectors.

I know I am past the age of this demographic....but I personally would avoid these type concerts....outdoors, kind of a "fair" type setup. It is just impossible.....or at least would seem much more difficult to control the crowd. At 43 years old.....I want a fixed seat that I have the option of setting in when I attend a concert. I probably did not feel this way when I was 23 years old.

The PD had nothing to do with it, stop being lazy. It is on the concert organizers and the people who obviously had no control of the situation.

I saw a 9 or 10 year old little girl was in bad shape fighting to live....on the surface, it does not seem like an event to take a 10 year old?

Nope, it was a free for all. Badly organized and now 8 people are dead and a whole lot more have life changing injuries.

Just looking at those ages is heartbreaking.

Condolences indeed, that is awful.

That reminds me of when they used to hold EDC at the LA Coliseum. A 15 year old died after overdosing on drugs and they ended up putting a bunch of restrictions which led to the event moving to Las Vegas. Of course this event is a much bigger tragedy so I don't see them avoiding any type of liability.

i never understood the herd mentality of trampling and crushing people.
I dont care whats going on at a stage Im not going to push against other people to try to inch closer or step on someone who is on the ground

It's gross AF but he's heavily marketed towards kids. They might even be his biggest demographic. He has a partnership with Mickey D's and Fortnite. I only know because some of my younger nephews and neices are fans of his. /vomit.
