Fans To Sue Snoop Dogg & Wiz khalifa Over Collapsed Railings
Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, and the owner of the B&T Pavilion in Camden, N.J. are being sued by several people who experienced injuries after the venue’s railing collapsed during the pair’s High Road Summer Tour show.
The lawsuit filed on Wednesday in a Philadelphia court doesn’t specify what damages are being sought, but identifies 17 total plaintiffs—14 concertgoers and three venue employees—including one who suffered a fractured spine. Their lawyer, Robert J. Mongeluzzi, said his clients want to prevent future incidents and deserve monetary compensation because the defendants did not take enough precautions to ensure safety, according to the Associated Press.
“I can tell you there is no doubt there was a crowd surge based upon the setup of the lawn with no chairs and no aisles, lack of security…and then the artists telling people to come forward,” Mongeluzzi said. “That’s the setup, and that’s the failure.”
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first incident to occur on the High Road Summer Tour. Earlier this month, more than 50 people were reportedly removed from the duo’s concert at the Nikon at Jones Beach Amphitheater with suspected alcohol poisoning.
