Lil Wayne Concert Leaves 12 Injured
On the 7th of October, Sunday – twelve concertgoers were injured after rumors of gunfire sent people in a frenzy as they searched for cover in between Lil Wayne’s set at the A3C festival in Atlanta, according to ABC13.
The Chaos Ensues
‘It appears someone in the crowd at the event located in the area of Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. and Central Ave. yelled that they heard gunshots,This caused people at the event to flee the location. At this time we haven’t been able to locate any evidence that support claims that shots were fired’,
A video posted on social media depicts absolute chaos as the audience flees from the stage area and attempts to climb the fence in order to escape. Some victims suffered minor injuries according to police.
The incident took place three songs into Wayne’s set, which was cut short much to the disappointment of his fans. The A3C festival stated that it was very sad the way things ended after Lil Wayne’s performance. They said that they were still trying to uncover more information regarding the incident. The authorities are going to reveal more about it as soon as they find it. Though, we all should be rest assured that there were no weapons associated with this incident.
Lil Wayne Concerned For His Fans Safety
Lil Wayne took to Twitter later that night to ask after his fans safety, “Hope everyone at A3C is safe”.
This was a major setback for Lil Wayne as his album “Tha Carter V” went straight to No 1 in the US charts this week – the second-biggest streaming week ever for an album, with its tracks played 433m times. It’s clear that the pop star really cares about his audience. We hope that such incidents don’t take place in the future. It’s sad to see something so beautiful as music to be the place where people cause chaos and destruction.
