Well you have head it right; two fans are blaming Beyonce and her managers for major injuries they suffered while attending Beyonce’s performance in Chicago at the United Center.
Gabriella Davidson and Raquel Castellanos bought tickets for the event, but according to reports, the two were trampled by a mob of fans before they ever even entered the venue. It seems their injuries were rather severe. Reports suggest that the two were knocked unconscious and suffered broken bones.
The suit states: ”As the hours passed, the group became larger, more dense and more anxious about how, when and where the gates would be released and where ticket holders and fans were supposed to enter The United Centre, none of which was explained. When the doors to the venue eventually opened there was a stampede and they got knocked to the ground and trampled by a rushing mob, leaving them both unconscious.”
They also suffered broken bones and other injuries during the incident, and missed the show because they had to go to a local hospital. The long time fans of Beyonce believe that the arena, concert promoters and Beyonce are responsible for the chaos and did nothing to prevent the incident from occurring.
Gabriella Davidson and Raquel Castellanos are seeking an undisclosed amount in damages in the six-count suit that alleges negligence on the part of The United Centre, Live Nation and Beyonce.
No court date has been set for the lawsuit between Beyonce and Gabriella Davidson and Raquel Castellanos.
However, this will probably never go to court because musicians and their promoters have a long history of quickly settling injury claims that occur at performances.
