A Keith Urban concert devolved into a drunken mess Saturday night ... with dozens of people being treated by medical personnel for alcohol issues ... and a number of others being arrested.

Urban was playing at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, about 30 miles south of Boston. According to local police and fire officials, 46 people were treated and 22 taken to local hospitals ... mostly due to drinking. Things were so bad, officials had to activate "a phase one EMS plan" ... which included ambulances from five surrounding communities.

People were so drunk at the show ... 50 people were taken into protective custody for their own good and many others arrested ... all for "alcohol-related issues."

Who knew a Keith Urban concert was such a good time?

Talent is not something anyone in the "newsroom" is familiar with. I imagine the scene was weather related due to high humidity and dehydration. Boozing just exasperated everything.

I wish I was drunk after scrolling down TMZ's website seeing double decker phatty Kimmode KarTRASHian's ass for some other website laying on some beach that is no contaminated with her disgusting diseased germs. Literally lost my breakfast.

Wow. He's no George Jones, but If he can drive people to drink that much, he's a more legitimate country artist than I thought.

They had to drink that much to deal with the embarrassment of actually being there in the first place.

TMZ...Being hauled off for your own safety is not a sign of what a great time you're having, it is a sad statement about how stupid you are. And it is also not an ego booster for Keith and his band.

I use to work at concert pavilion and most of COUNTRY concerts put on we're alcohol free events. I remember asking "Why do we serve alcohol at Rap concerts, but not country concerts?" Even tough people were searched THROUGHLY at the rap concerts, and not the country ones. (I'm talking fingers down peoples waistbands on every single search!!) I was told the policy was formed after past concerts...

What does "treated" for drinking mean? These reports sound overblown and exaggerated .

They were probably drinking hard liquor straight from the bottle. Keith Urban is the new Bret Michaels, wear a bandanna and stop wearing the wig extensions.
