House of Blues, Bank of America Pavilion will not be sanctioned after drug overdose incidents
The Boston Licensing Board today issued no sanctions against two concert venues where six patrons suffered drug overdoses in late August, including one overdose that killed a young woman.
The board ruled that the House of Blues nightclub and the Bank of America Pavilion did not commit any violations.
The rulings came two days after regulators held hearings on the clubs’ security and responses to the overdoses. In both cases, police told the board there was likely nothing the clubs could have done.
At the House of Blues, three spectators overdosed on the club drug Molly, one of them fatally. Just days later, three patrons suffered overdoses at a concert at the pavilion, an outdoor ampitheater on the South Boston waterfront.Peter Schworm can be reached at email@example.com.
