The Friday night incident was captured on video and posted on Twitter.

The show will go on at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, N.J., following a railing collapse that left dozens of fans injured during a Friday night concert featuring Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa.

An I Love the '90s concert including 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 event.

A Camden city spokesperson said city fire crews and inspectors responded to the scene and remained there Saturday morning and were working to stabilize the railing where the collapse occurred and determine what repairs would be needed.

The collapse occurred after Snoop and Khalifa gestured to fans to come toward the stage, officials said. That's when people rushed toward the railing and it collapsed. Billboard has reached out to a rep for Snoop for more details and any statement from the rapper.

Camden County officials say one person suffered an upper body injury and was hospitalized overnight, then released on Saturday morning. The person's name has not been released and further details on their injuries were not disclosed.

Among the other 41 injured were several fans and some employees of Live Nation, which operates the venue. Most were treated for bruises and other minor injuries, but some also suffered broken bones.

The cause of the collapse remains under investigation.
