Ten-gallon hats, daisy dukes and cowboy boots were an outfit of choice for a few attending the Luke Bryan concert at Heinz Field tonight on Pittsburgh‘s North Shore.
By the time Mr. Bryan took to the stage -- music could be heard over the stadium gates -- the parking lot next to the Carnegie Science Center was empty of people, aside from a few stragglers, and trash.
Though the scene was far from pristine, police and event workers said the trash pile-up wasn't nearly as bad as at last year's Kenny Chesney concert.
"It was as high as your waist on you," a Pittsburgh police officer told a 5-foot-3 reporter about the trash that accumulated outside Heinz Field in 2013.
A spokeswoman at Allegheny General Hospital on the North Side said they had treated "a few" concert-goers by 9:50 p.m., but would not divulge how many or the extent of their injuries. She did say no one from the concert was suffering from anything life-threatening.
Pittsburgh public safety spokesperson Sonya Toler wrote in an email that she would not know the number of people hospitalized or arrested until Sunday.
