WPXY's Summer Jam Gets Jammed

Events got a little out of hand at ENTERCOM Top 40 WPXY/ROCHESTER’s Summer Jam at the ferry terminal in the Port of ROCHESTER, reports THE DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE. "A misunderstanding about crowd capacity in the new venue, and perhaps the printing of up to 4,000 bogus tickets, resulted in about 1,500 ticket holders being turned away at the gate.
Police said WPXY printed about 9,000 tickets for the free event. An estimated 7,500 people were allowed inside.
"That presented a little bit of a situation. When the word got out there that nobody else was going to be admitted, we had a bit of a rush at the gate," said ROCHESTER police Lt. JOHN SMITH.
The concert featured WE THE KINGS and THE TING TINGS, WHITE TIE AFFAIR, 3OH!3 and KRISTINA DEBARGE’s first ever live performance in front of an audience. In a suprise, DEBARGE was proposed to by PXY Air Personality MOOSE, onstage, immediately after her incredible performance. MOOSE dropped down to one knee and said that it was "love at first sight -- about 30-minutes ago." A somewhat baffled and surprised DEBARGE accepted and told the crowd, "Yes! And I want to marry all of you too!"
