The concert of R and B singer, Akon organized at Fields Shopping Mall in Denmark got chaotic, as a riot broke loose among the fans. The 1000-capacity concert area had around 2000 people and when things got out of control, the police had to evacuate the venue with a fire alarm alert.
Mall Director, Jens Geppel says, "It was a free concert and we knew that many people would come, but there were a lot of people there, more than we had expected." Just after Akon rendered three of his hit numbers, a fire alarm was set off which prompted the cops to usher the large crowd out of the retail centre. This instigated the fans even more and they protested from leaving the place. The unrest got bad when the concert-goers hurled rocks and drinks bottles at the officers, which resulted in eight arrests. Many were reported to be injured, but none got serious, though.
But, what actually caused the fire alarm to ring? Well, the mall security have launched an investigation to get to know more details as to what exactly triggered this false alarm that disrupted the thrilling concert.
