It might seem unlikely that people would get their drink on too much at a Fleetwood Mac show in 2019, but that was the case at the band’s recent show in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Per the New Zealand Herald, 17 people were kicked out of Forsyth Barr Stadium during Fleetwood Mac’s show on September 21 due to excessive drunkenness. The venue actually had a ban on serving liquor after a show from New Zealand band Six60 got way too rowdy earlier this year.

Despite the ejections, Kim Barnes, the marketing manager for Dunedin Venues, said, “We were thrilled with the crowd’s behavior, given that we had nearly 30,000 people there.”

When you think about it that way, that doesn’t seem like too extream of a figure, but still, if you’re playing age odds of those in attendance at a Fleetwood Mac show, you should know your alcohol tolerance by now. Keep your drinking together, if only for the people around you.
