Rihanna and Eminem kicked off their joint Monster tour in Pasadena, Calif. on Friday night and the over-excitement from audience members led to several arrests.
Police arrested 12 people for public intoxication and hospitalized 15 others at the Rose Bowl on the tour’s opening night.
According to CBS LA, Pasadena police Cmdr. John E. Perez confirmed there were 17 arrests in total, including one arrest for assaulting a security guard at the venue.
On Thursday, five people were arrested for attempting to scalp tickets and as a result, there were no similar arrests on Friday night.
Idolator reports the show opens with a short film inspired by Silence of the Lambs and launches into new takes of their hits, such as Eminem’s “Stan” and a cover of Paramore’s “Airplanes," Rihanna sang by herself.
This hasn’t been the only concert that has sent music fans to the hospital, as Keith Urban’s Massachusetts tour stop sent 22 fans to the hospital for alcohol-related issues last month.
