CHICAGO — Lollapalooza 2015 Day 2 ends with a little drama and a lot of rock.

Metallica, tonight’s headliner, put on a monster set to close out the night.

Soulful singer Sam Smith and Alesso, on Perry’s Stage,  also headlined Day 2.

And speaking of Perry’s stage, Travi$ Scott’s set this afternoon started late, was cut short and ended with Travi$ himself under arrest.

Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management released a statement Saturday evening saying:

The performer played one song and then began telling fans to come over the barricades. Due to the security’s quick response, the situation was remedied immediately and no fans were injured.

The performer fled the scene and was taken into custody a short while later. He is being charged with disorderly conduct. One fan has also been charged with disorderly conduct.

Here’s a recap of the entire day at Grant Park.
