A techno concert at TD Garden Wednesday night descended into chaos as more than 80 people were reportedly treated by medical personnel after widespread alcohol and drug use.

WHDH/7News reported about 35 people were transported to local hospitals, while the rest were evaluated at the scene. Heat may have also played a factor.

The mayhem happened during a performance by Avicii, a Swedish DJ.

The artist, whose real name is Tim Bergling, tweeted this message after the concert:

"Just hearing the awful news abt tonight. Its a terrible thing, I rly hope everyone is ok! My thoughts go to those affected & their families."

None of the concertgoers were in serious condition, according to WHDH.

In defense of drug abusers, nobody could listen to that electronica stuff without some kind of sedatives.

That is a very difficult place to control at a concert. Drugs are smuggled in and the place is dark. Alcohol is also available and they have SECURITY handling the inside and not enough Boston Police. Concert crowds notice that and proceed to get "Messed Up".
