Chance The Rapper definitely did not expect these problems!

More than 90 people were hospitalized in Connecticut during a concert headlined by the Grammy-award winning artist.

Officers made 50 underage drinking referrals at Hot 93.7’s Hot Jam concert at Xfinity Theatre on Friday.

“The number of people taken to the hospital on Friday night far exceeds what is typical for a concert in the city,” Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley reported to the Hartford Courant.

“A ‘typical’ concert is around 20-30 transports. 60 would be very bad. We had 70 once and 90 [Friday],” Foley added.

Hartford Fire Captain Raul Ortiz said that the department was overwhelmed by the “constant cycling of transports”.

Hartford’s ambulance provider had to call in additional resources and some patients had to be taken to hospitals in surrounding towns.

Most of the hospitalized concert goers were underage and an excessive consumption of alcohol was the culprit.
