Luke Bryan's stop in Pittsburgh made waves

People Magazinethe Tennessean and Deadspin all took notice of Luke Bryan’s appearance in Pittsburgh last weekend. 

News of the country music fiasco that occurred in Pittsburgh when Bryan’s fans left the North Shore littered with waste spread quickly after the concert on Saturday. 

People Magazine focused on the positive and reported that Luke Bryan’s show set the all-time record for ticket sales at Heinz Field while the Tennessean emphasized the chaos created by those 50,000 fans. 

Mayor Bill Peduto issued a statement denouncing the fans’ behavior and promising to bill promoters and private parties for the damage as opposed to paying for the damage with taxpayer dollars. 

"The continued trashing of our city has to stop. There is no reason ... (for taxpayers) to bear the burden for outsized amounts of garbage removal and public safety response," Peduto says.  

During the event, there were 150 calls to 911, 34 people transported to hospitals, and 15 fights that required public safety intervention. 

Deadspin compiled video clips from WPXI’s footage of tailgating concert goers and focused on one especially intoxicated man stumbling around on the sidewalk.
