That's right Brat live up to your name. Continue to accept and be oblivious to what's thrown at you. Maybe one day when you have responsibilities and something to call your own you will understand what it means to have a structured life, that is when you get one.

Any complaint should be valid enough to be concerned about, there must be some credibility to it because why would anyone make up an incident. Obviously with complaints / concerns there I room for improvement.

Some really nice thinly-veiled racism on display here. Congrats JCList - you never disappoint! I too am nervous about the crowd he'll attract: an overabundance of Hoboken bros in their 30s (think 'Old School,' which made fun of white people liking Snoop 15 years ago).


11 people shot in JC between June 30th and July 7th. I don’t think it was improper to worry that there could’ve been violence at the concert/fireworks.

What a tragedy everyone should ask for their money back for the full price of the tickets to the fireworks and the Snoop Dogg concert. Disgusting!

The horror the horror ....

Any and all of the televised fireworks started on time. Anyone with any professional show experience can make stuff happen on time.

I have no idea what led to Snoop Dogg's act being late, but someone needed to keep all the concert acts in line as to on and off times on the concert stage. 5 minutes late would have been one thing, but 45 minutes late, total screw up.

Tardiness, short of health emergencies or similar, is one of the ruder things in this world. It's a sign that you believe your time is more valuable than others.

that reasoning only works if you ever paid attention to the cranks predicting the Apocalypse. Almost nobody does. But the undisputed fact is that the fireworks show started 45min late for what, >100k people? That's real, and unprofessional at the least. A professional organizing this large event would include an on-time clause in the contract, and if the chosen performer refuses, find one that will.

I can't believe it, I agree with your post 100%! As for who brings kids to a loud concert, many apparently, but many also chose one of the plentiful shoreline spots NOT at the concert from which to view the fireworks. What we got was the tail wagging the Dogg, Snoop was an opening act for the fireworks, not the main event. Can you imagine a headliner waiting an hour for their opening act to finish?

Snoop Dogg’s Fourth of July performance enrages NJ parents

By Elana Fishman July 5, 2018 | 12:57pm


Snoop Dogg’s headlining performance at Wednesday’s Jersey City Fourth of July Experience went into D-O-double-overtime, infuriating parents whose small children just wanted to see the fireworks.

The 46-year-old rap legend was scheduled to take the stage at 8:30 p.m., according to Jersey City’s Office of Cultural Affairs, and wrap up by 9:20 p.m., with the fireworks display slated to begin immediately following his performance.

But Snoop’s set, which included hits like “Gin and Juice” and “The Next Episode,” started nearly an hour late. It also lasted longer than planned, due to an appearance by surprise guest Akon.

By the time the fireworks finally started at around 10:15 p.m., many impatient parents had already headed home with their kids — but not before tweeting their disapproval at both the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper and Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop.

“Epic fail tonight at @jerseycity waterfront,” one Twitter user wrote. “@SnoopDogg started late & pushed back the fireworks show. Thousands of JC parents & kids await fireworks. School night. The ppl of JC are super annoyed & bummed and r bailing. @StevenFulop ur residents are not ur biggest fan right now.”

Another user tweeted, “hey Mr. Mayor, half of our party and thousands of other little kids had to go home because the fireworks were so late due to Snoop Dogg?”

Fulop later addressed the scheduling snafu on Twitter, writing: “We do our best. That’s all we can do. I know after 5 years in this job that I can sadly never please everyone as sometimes issues surface. All in all I think people had a great time – it was a long day with lots to juggle.”

A Jersey City spokeswoman confirmed to Page Six that Snoop Dogg’s performance was the reason for the delayed fireworks display.

Page Six has reached out to Snoop’s rep for comment.

people brought their kids to the fireworks, not the concert, then waited an extra hour with increasingly tired and cranky kids.

not the worst thing that can happen at an event of this size, but still plenty annoying.

Heck, I've been at shows where the band starts close to the scheduled time (within 10 minutes) and people complained because they were still making their way through security so the venue wasn't full.

Anyway, you can't win. People will always find something to complain about.


If there's a major event afterwards that many thousands of people are waiting for who AREN'T EVEN AT THE CONCERT, then you start and end on time. I was in LSP by the 9/11 memorial, and fireworks viewing was perfect, when they finally got around to it. If I still had little kids with me I would have been furious.

Why would anybody think a rap concert would start on time @ 8:30? I am sure the producers knew that... an hour late is being very accomodating to a rap audience on a hot night.

I saw Lavarro twitter live.. it wasn't a video of the longest soundcheck ever but it was pretty apparent he was late. Jersey City should be thankful he even showed up.

Because he got paid $100k that's way. And it was a national event with mass crowds where we cannot afford that type of lax security. How dare J.C. allow this to occur !

He actually didn't go on till 9:30 and did his full show. Why were you at that show anyway, weren't you one of the ones yammering about shootings? Could it be you knew your own words were absolute bs?

There for the fireworks, wasn't anywhere near that obnoxious show. But he still managed to h-jack my time though.
