N.J. Venue Back to Business Day After Railing Collapses at Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa Concert
It appears that the show will go at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, N.J., following a railing collapse that left dozens of fans injured during a Friday night (Aug. 5) concert from Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa.
An I Love the '90s concert featuring Salt N Pepa, Vanilla Ice and other performers is scheduled for Saturday night at the pavilion following the previous night’s accident that left 42 people injured. Officials said the show would take place, though it wasn't clear if any areas would be blocked off during the show.

A Camden city spokesperson said city fire crews and inspectors responded to the scene and remained there Saturday morning, and were working to stabilize the railing where the collapse occurred and determine what repairs would be needed.
The collapse occurred after Snoop and Khalifa gestured to fans to come toward the stage, officials said. That's when people rushed toward the railing and it collapsed. Billboard has reached out to a rep for Snoop for more details and any statement from the rapper.
