The list of 36 injured attendees also includes 13 people between 16 to 19. Alcohol is suspected to have played a major role in the disruption. The venue had instituted a one-beer limit for the mostly teenage crowd, however TD Garden employees reported that there was “vomit everywhere.”

Amid the chaos left in the wake of the gig, concert promoter Live Nation released the following statement: “released a statement saying, "While this is still a developing situation, based on early reports from the venue it appears the majority of the transports were people outside the venue who were too impaired to be allowed inside the venue and access to the concert.
