Eminem‘s concerts are usually rowdy but never off the chain! Over 50 concertgoers were arrested at the rapper’s Slane Castle show in Ireland Saturday (Aug. 17). WTF!

According to the Independent, police arrested 22 people for disorderly conduct, 35 people for minor drug offenses and five people for reported assaults.

Actually, this is not so bad considering 80,000 people were in attendance. But usually its Slim Shady who is causing the raucous onstage not the fans.

Extra security was provided for the Eminem concert, which included body searches at three different entrances. Overall, 750 police officers were on patrol with 500 additional security personal securing the fairgrounds.

As for the concert, Eminem reportedly performed a set of 28 songs including his Oscar-winning hit, ‘Lose Yourself.’

The Detroit native has a few more shows to perform overseas including the Reading and Leeds Festivals this weekend in France and Glasgow, respectively.
