Nine People Stabbed At Latest Swedish House Mafia Show
So much for saving the world…Swedish House Mafia, who headlined at Dublin’s Phoenix Park, part of the last series of shows the trio will perform, was not expecting this type of attention. According to BBC, two out of the nine people stabbed were seriously injured and a separate incident involving a man believed to be in his 20s, died from a suspected drugs overdose at the concert. The Garda have arrested a 23-year-old man believed to be involved in the stabbings. However, the police force of Ireland is continuing to investigate whether or not more individuals were a part of this horrific incident.
“More than 45,000 people were at the concert, which also featured Snoop Dogg, Tinie Tempah and Calvin Harris”
Promoters for the event stated that every precaution had been taken in order to assure the safety of its spectators, however, MCD stated,
“Despite our best efforts – with security and gardaí personnel levels well in excess of the required numbers for a licensed event of this size – there is only so much one can do to combat anti-social behaviour”
