PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The excitement over Kenny Chesney Saturday proved to be a little too much for some people with the night ending with several fights and numerous arrests.

Police say 49 people were arrested inside Heinz field during the concert, with another 24 arrests taking place near the venue on the North Shore. Police say most of the arrests were for disorderly conduct, public intoxication and aggravated assault.

I'll be the first to admit, I don't know much about country music, but that's the genre Chesney plays, isn't it (I see he wears a cowboy hat)???

So, WTH??? This is the kind of stuff I'd expect at a 50 cent concert.

This goes on all the time at other types of music venues, this is just the media saying “Look, we can tell you about this one without being called racist!”

You’ve obviously never been to any of the string quartet recitals I’ve been to.

We stopped going to Toby Keith concerts for the same reason. We had trouble 3 years running and finally said gave up.

The first couple of Toby Keith concerts we went to were really good experiences, but over the years the crowd got progressively worse.

It’s the continued debasing and degradation of our society. Everywhere you go these days you need to be careful and aware of your surroundings. Remember, “Idiocracy” is a documentary.

Well, there was a riot when Stravinsky premiered “The Rite of Spring” in 1913 or so.

There was almost some fightin', but I got my wife's jacket back from the drunk girls who stole it without their boyfriends causing trouble.

Lots of pretty boy Nashville singers wear cowboy hats. Only a few have actually lived the life, however.

George Strait is the King.

He’s just better than anyone else and they all know it, and in a quiet sort of way, George knows it , too.

He is not a country singer. As most who label themselves as country they are pop artists at best.

oh no, it looks like somebody's tryin' to crack our secret pennsyltucky code.

You should know though that folks in the Pixburgh say "yinz" as opposed to the more proper "yuns" spoken in the outlands.

And please don't drop the "h", we worked for that "h", it ain't like this is Kansas or somethin.

I work on the North Shore.
People were starting to party in the morning on Friday.
This morning I parked in the lot you see in that picture. It's a lovely fragrance of stale beer and urine with lots of broken glass all over. PPD had their hands full I am certain (good job guys!)

Actually he’s not. Won’t say how I know this, yet I will state that he is known as the biggest *hore on tour. All women. But hey, if saying he’s gay makes you feel better about things, go for it.

Oh well, there are tons of ‘new’ country singers that have the pop flavor, but Kenny is not one of them.

Kenny was the #3 music money maker in 2012 after Taylor Swift and U2.

Pittsburgh’s denizens are a lower form of life across the board— calling them rednecks is too good for them.

My neighbor is from Pittsburgh and I should know better to spell ‘yinz’ correctly. It hit me that I had messed up about a half-hour later, but I figured someone would make the correction.

Not rough, just &$$holes. I don't need to pay a bunch of money and drive 60 miles for that kind of action. I can take good-natured roughhousing, but some of the people there were just plain mean.
