“Enough is enough—the continued trashing of our city has to stop.

“Pittsburgh is the cultural and economic engine for our entire tri-state region and hosting concerts is part that tradition. But there is no reason that a large event like the one Saturday (June 21) on the North Shore should force city taxpayers to bear the burden for outsized amounts of garbage removal and public safety response.

“Public Safety officials responded to more than 300 incidents related to the concert.” These were statements made by Mayor Bill Peduto after the Luke Bryan country concert at Heinz Field; where around 60,000 people attended this mega concert that also included Dierks Bentley, Cole Swindell and Lee Brice.

My question is what would have happened if a hip-hop/rap concert had been held in Pittsburgh and they left the same mess that fans at the country concert left?

Would the mayor be complaining or would he and city officials be saying “NO MORE?”
