WALWORTH COUNTY – Alpine Valley, East Troy’s outdoor music amphitheater, is owned by Live Nation, the same company that hosted the Astroworld Music Festival at NRG Park in Houston, where 10 people died after a wave of crowd at a concert on November 5.

After the incident, the Lake Geneva Regional News contacted Alpine Valley management and Live Nation with questions about the incident and additional security checks that may be put in place in the future. Neither returned calls for comment.

The injuries and deaths occurred when spectators rushed onto the stage during a performance of Travis Scott.

The deceased participants are between 9 and 27 years old. Hundreds of people were injured; more than 300 were treated on site for their injuries and 25 of them were hospitalized, according to the Associated Press.

As of Tuesday, nearly 200 lawsuits had been filed in connection with the incident.

Among those who filed lawsuits, there are two security guards who claimed there was no adequate training.

The next planned act in Alpine Valley is Rage Against the Machine on July 9, 2022.
