A free concert by rapper Tyler, the Creator at Fox Theater in Boulder, Colo., seems to have gotten out of hand, as reports of a “riot situation” are surfacing on Twitter.

Riot on the hill in Boulder… Wonder if it’s related to the free @fucktyler show tonight??

— Matt✌Montoya (@mattty_mcfly) March 12, 2013

The free, all-ages show was presented by Tumblr and tickets were given out on a first-come, first-served basis.

HOLY SH*T! There is a line around the block, up the corner & down the street for this @fucktyler show! #wow

@thecatjones1978 Riot reported outside Boulder’s Fox Theatre Dem Students going wild.

The scene looks reasonably calm from this angle; is it just hype, or a bona fide riot? Police are no strangers to shows by Odd Future, the rap collective of which Tyler is a member.

Tyler the Creator causing hubbub on Hill in #boulder. So far, pretty innocuous. About 300 in front of Fox. twitter.com/abuvthefold/st…

It looks as though reports of a “riot” are premature, but police are on hand to make sure things stay that way.

There is no indication there is an actual riot outside the Fox Theatre in #Boulder.Pictures suggest a very large crowd.
