Over 50 Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa Concertgoers Suffer From Alcohol Poisoning
Less than a week after 42 people were injured at Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg's concert in Camden, N.J. when a railing collapsed, their High Road tour has experienced another unfortunate incident with over 50 people removed from their Jones Beach stop Tuesday night (Aug. 9) due to alcohol poisoning, the New York Post's Page Six reports.
The scene, as described by a park official, sounds like a high school party gone awry, with 11 concertgoers taken to area hospitals, including an 18-year-old male who broke his nose as he hit the ground from a drunken fall. Four arrests were made for possession of marijuana, and sources tell the newspaper that teenagers were drinking vodka from water bottles in the restrooms and venue parking lot. Officers closed the restrooms after three drunken teens were removed within 20 minutes of each other. Those not taken to the hospital had their parents called.
The Nikon Jones Beach Amphitheater is an outdoor venue on Long Island, with Snoop posting the below video to Instagram before the show began. Both Snoop and Wiz are high volume substance consumers, but many of their younger fans would be wise not to emulate their level or frequency of intake. The High Road Tour continues tonight in Burgettstown, Pa. and will continue to Noblesville, Ind. on Thursday. Here is to hoping those dates, and all the others on the tour which ends in early September, go off without a hitch.
