Fights Break Out After Celine Dion Concert

Fans say the Celine Dion concert was wonderful, but it was after the show where crowds got unruly and into a case of “ramp rage.” Milwaukee Police were called to the parking ramp across from the Bradley Center on Monday night after people became enraged while waiting to leave the structure.

Phil Vollrath says fights started to erupt after about an hour following the show.

“They got out of their cars and were shouting and waving their fists at each other, calling 911,” said Vollrath.”One car came driving down the ramp at a good rate of speed with its horn blowing.”

One woman ended up in a car accident when, she says, someone tried to cut her off. Another person called police because people were pounding on her vehicle

The city blames the problems on the fact that the parking garage was filled with cars.


I thought Celine Dion was one of those soft, loving, Canadian singers that followed the poem of William Congreve:


Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast,
To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak.


Well – I think Celine needs to work on her soothing. Her multiyear long gig in Vegas must have roughed her up a bit. Also – The local constabulary needs to work on its ability to affix blame. Reread the last sentence above. DUH…

Hat Tip: Mark R


PS – In case you were concerned or wondering, Congreve also coined this gem:

Heav’n has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn’d,
Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn’d.

  1. Our Officers have a drier sense of humor.
    I actually got caught up in a traffic jam in that garage when it was jammed packed with a bunch of Christians from a meeting at the BC. The cops were amazed at how well the traffic flowed and how people were letting others back out of spots and letting them into the traffic lane.
