Five People Arrested At Calvin Harris Concert

Five people arrested at Calvin Harris concert

Up to five people were arrested at a Calvin Harris concert in Dublin Thursday.

According to the Irish Independent, the Gardai — the police force in Ireland — said there was a large scattering of people outside the 02, where Harris’ “Greater Than” tour is being held, and “four or five fans” were arrested for being drunk and disorderly. The fans were taken to the Store Street garda station.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Calvin Harris isn’t exactly a fan of his older music. The Scottish DJ decided to change his musical output in 2010, and won’t play his old songs live.

“I don’t play anything I made back then. I feel like I’m a different thing now,” the 29-year-old said. “Before then I came in, and I was singing with a band and I was making completely different music… I made this club track called ‘Awooga’. It was really obnoxious, and it was to get rid of people who liked my old music.”

The change in musical direction paid off as Harris became the first artist ever to record nine top 10 singles from one album earlier this year. Harris released his third studio album, 18 Months, in October 2012, and the songs “Bounce”, “Feel So Close”, “Let’s Go”, “We’ll Be Coming Back”, “Sweet Nothing”, “Drinking from the Bottle”, “I Need Your Love” and “Thinking About You,” as well as “We Found Love” (featuring Rihanna), reached the top 10 of the UK Singles Chart.

18 Months also debuted at the top of the UK Albums Chart, selling over 52,000 copies in its first week and earning Harris his second consecutive number one album in the UK.

Calvin Harris was also recently named the highest-paid DJ in 2013 by Forbes. He earned over $45 million through touring and album sales. Harris said his success was simply due to good timing.

“The rise of dance music has been astronomical in the last three years,” he said. “I happened to be in the right place at the right time.”
