Minister for Justice Alan Shatter has called on concert promoters MCD to apologise for the events which occurred at the Phoenix Park throughout the day of the Swedish House Mafia performance on Saturday.

"I do think the promoters should apologise for the level of disorder at the concert", Mr Shatter told the Dail today. The minister also stated that he intends to bring forth legislation to tackle the problems of widespread drinking which were so evident last weekend.

Meanwhile, Labour Party TD Eamon Maloney told Shatter today that MCD management should be arrested for their part in the weekend's events and accused the company of failing to express adequate sympathy to the victims of violence and drug and alcohol abuse on Saturday.

Nine people were stabbed at the concert, most victims in the back but two were stabbed in the chest and one in the back of the head.

Gardai chiefs had previously held what was described as a "productive" meeting with MCD in which they discussed the security details which were in place, during which MCD revealed that 656 security personnel in total were on site and far surpassed the terms of the license with Dublin City Council.
