Two Beyoncé fans are taking legal action against the singer after they were trampled during a mad rush to the stage in Chicago, Ill.

Raquel Castellanos and Gabriella Davidson filed the suit claiming they arrived at the United Center early so they could get a good spot by the stage with their general admission tickets.  Soon after doors opened, the two girls are alleging they were pushed to the ground by the crowd and trampled, leaving them unconscious and with broken bones.

Other defendants on the lawsuit include United Center and Live Nation.

According to the lawsuit, the two woman showed up several hours early for the show and when doors opened to allow concertgoers in, United Center had no barrier or set up to alleviate the mass confusion of fans.  The dense crowd grew more anxious and the two girls say once doors opened, it was a free-for-all.

They were helped up by fellow concertgoers and taken to a nearby hospital, missing the entire show.

They are suing on six counts of negligence for an undisclosed amount.
