    Mohegan Sun does not plan on adding security for Swedish DJ Avicii’ show on Friday night, two days after dozens of fans at his Boston show needed to be hospitalized.

    On Wednesday night, 36 people who attended the popular DJ’s concert at the TD Garden were rushed to area hospitals to be treated for dehydration and suspected drug and alcohol use.

    Officials in Boston said most of those patients were underage.

    With hits including “Levels” and “Sunshine” with David Guetta, Avicii’s rising popularity is expected to draw a large crowd to the Mohegan Sun Arena, but officials said they are confident in the security at the arena and prepared for the size and nature of the crowd that will be attending the show.
