50 Cent Concert Cut Short, Stage Almost Collapses
According to The Las Vegas Review Journal, 50 was performing on a stage over the Hard Rock Hotel pool which was surrounded by electrical equipment and the audience was pushing hard against the stage nearly bringing the front end down into the water.
50 and his entourage teld the crowd to move back and get out the pool, but the requests fell on def ears. The G-Unit honcho and his associates then rushed off stage. Hard Rock staff and crew members immediately broke down the stage and shut off electricity.
Prior to cutting his performance short, 50 was joined on stage by Ludacris and boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. No injuries were reported.
