Hours after Camden’s BB&T Pavilion made headlines for the railing incident, the venue reportedly opened back up last night (August 6) for another event.

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. (Billboard)

According to reports, multiple concertgoers suffered injuries from the event’s railing breaking apart after the hip-hop duo encouraged fans to move closer to their stage.

Some reports claimed over 40 people had been taken to a local hospital.
