Brad Paisley Concert Ends With 46 Arrests
In one of his best-loved hits, Brad Paisley sings about the sometimes humorous consequences of too much ‘Alcohol,’ saying that it will cause “some of the best times you’ll never remember,” but for at least 46 of his fans, those words are far from the truth, thanks to recent arrests at one of the superstar’s live shows.
At Brad’s Darien Lake, NY, show, part of his current H2O World Tour, police were kept busy trying to maintain crowd control when alcohol fueled some disruptive behavior. Thirty-eight were charged as minors in possession of alcohol with intent to consume. Several concertgoers were also charged with disorderly conduct, with two cited for fighting concert security, and at least one for trespassing after trying to re-enter the show after being ejected.
Brad began his H2O World Tour on May 21 in Virginia, only three weeks after he lost most of his guitars, as well as stage props for the show, in Nashville’s devastating flood. The show, which is more carnival than concert, includes a separate stage filled with water activities, plus performances by Easton Corbin, Steel Magnolia and Josh Thompson. Darius Rucker and Justin Moore are both serving as opening acts for Brad.
The H2O World Tour is currently scheduled to run through Sept 25. Click here for dates.
