Toronto police are investigating after fireworks were set of inside the Scotiabank Arena during a Dua Lipa concert Wednesday evening.


The fireworks were set off before midnight in the packed arena.

“At 11:42 p.m. police responded to reports that someone threw a firework at the end of a concert at the Scotiabank arena. Three people had minor injuries and were seen by internal EMS medics that were working at the concert. None of them were required to be seen by an ambulance,” said Const. Laura Brabant.

“There was no damage caused to the property. There is no suspect information at this time. Investigators are working with security at the arena to view video surveillance. This remains an active investigation, anyone with information is encouraged to contact police.”

The suspect could face mischief and endangering life charges.

Dua Lipa Today tweeted about the incident.


“Fireworks were apparently smuggled into Dua Lipa’s tour show in Toronto last night and was set off at the roof and the audience. Luckily, no injuries were reported,” Dua Lipa wrote.

Shayla tweeted, “Ain’t no way that those fireworks were supposed to go off INDOORS at the Dua Lipa Toronto concert. I was scared if if you couldn’t tell.”

One witness said the fireworks sounded like gun shots.



Kaylepew tweeted she didn’t realized the fireworks were unplanned.

Video posted shows Lipa looking shocked when the fireworks went off.

“I was front row and by far was the most aggressive Chaotic floor crowd I’ve ever seen, everyone was so rude and aggressive. You could see on Dua’s face that was 100% not planned she looked concerned,” Jsblunt tweeted.

Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which operates the arena, hasn’t commented on the incident.
