MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) -- The Keith Urban concert outside Boston that made headlines because 46 people went to hospitals for alcohol-related illnesses has taken a darker turn. The Attleboro Sun Chronicle reports an 18-year-old man was arrested for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl on the lawn during the show Saturday. Police say the suspect, Sean Murphy of Boston, called it a consensual encounter. Police also say both Murphy and the girl were drinking and the two did not know each other before meeting at the show. Police say several onlookers videotaped or took pictures of the incident, which was stopped when a woman intervened and the girl said she was not consenting. Murphy's lawyer, Neil Crowley, says the girl did not push Murphy away or protest. Murphy has pleaded innocent. He's due back in court September 25.


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Fall Out Boy are showing their support for a school marching band who were banned from performing an instrumental version of their song "Thanks for the Memories." Garden Spot High School in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is forbidden from performing that song and "Locked Out Of Heaven" by Bruno Mars after a school board found the lyrics to be offensive. Fall Out Boy posted video of their Friday concert in West Palm Beach, Florida, in which bassist Pete Wentz says they support creativity and they'd be happy to perform a different song with the marching band.


UNDATED (AP) -- Maynard James Keenan of Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer is celebrating the birth of his daughter. He posted a photo on Puscifer's Instagram site of a newborn holding an adult's hand. Keenan says the baby's name is Lei Li Agostina Maria. She was born on Friday. Keenan also has an 18-year-old son.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- New Australian acts generally don't make a big splash with first-week album sales in America, but then 5 Seconds Of Summer came along. Their self-titled debut has sold 259,000 copies its first week, according to Capitol Records. That puts it on top of the Billboard 200 album chart. Meanwhile, 5 Seconds Of Summer have announced a summer tour -- for next summer. The Rock Out With Your Socks Out Tour begins July 17, 2015, in Las Vegas. If you want to see them before then, they're opening for One Direction through October.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Andy Grammer wrote a hundred songs to get the 12 that are on his "Magazines or Novels" album. Grammer says that was no half-hearted effort, either. He says he went all out on each one thinking it was a hit, and then he'd hear it again and decide it was not very good. He scrapped all but one of the first 50 songs he wrote. Grammer says he felt like he was looking over a cliff thinking, "Maybe could I just do it from up here." He says the second 50 were him jumping off the cliff. "Magazines or Novels" comes out Tuesday.
