Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw wrapped up their Brothers of the Sun tour with two sold-out shows Friday and Saturday (Aug. 24-25) at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. A total of 111,209 tickets were sold for the concerts near Boston which ended a 22-city tour that began June 2 in Tampa, Fla. The Boston Herald newspaper reports that Foxboro police arrested 101 during the two concerts on a variety of charges, including disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, trespassing, assault and battery and assault and battery on a police officer. Another 466 were placed into protective custody because of alcohol intoxication. "It's unfortunate, you know?" Foxboro Selectman Mark Sullivan told the newspaper. "It's just the way these young adults are today. They're just crazy." Accentuating the positive, Gillette Stadium spokesman Jeff Cournoyer noted, "Well over 99 percent of them had a safe and enjoyable experience thanks to the combined efforts of stadium security, local police and state police."
