More than 50 fans were reportedly arrested at Eminem's weekend show in Ireland, with some reports putting the number as high as 63.

The rapper performed at the country's Slane Castle to a crowd of 80,000 fans, requiring major forms of security including a reported presence from the Coast Guard, local law enforcement, and private security staff. Said security officers became necessary during the show, as 22 people were reportedly arrested for committing "public order offenses." An additional 35 concert-goers were also arrested for crimes including drug offenses and assault, according to the Press Association.

Eminem performed in Ireland just days after the release of his first new song in years. Last week, Slim Shady debuted "Survival," a song which is featured in the video game "Call of Duty: Ghosts" and is the first track off of his upcoming eighth studio album.

Marshall Mathers, who has yet to comment on the arrests, is scheduled to perform four more shows in Europe this month. The rapper will headline the Reading and Leeds Festivals, as well as playing shows in France and Glasgow.
