MOBILE, Alabama (WKRG) – The grounds at Ladd Peebles Stadium were packed on Saturday for the No Limit Soldier Reunion, featuring Master P, Trina and Mystical.
Event organizers Dwight Williams and Brent Lewis told News 5 they expected nearly 4,000 people to attend.
Williams said the event was planned for safety.
“We’re trying to show Mobile that our culture can have something and do something together without violence,” Williams said.
This concert took place after a shooting at the Ladd Pebbles football stadium only last year. Making security a primary concern for promoters.
“We are raising security. We have metal detectors and we believe in God, “Lewis said.
Mobile police officers as well as deputies from the mobile county sheriff’s office were also stationed throughout the stadium.
Visitors to the concert, including Paul May and Bria Nicholson, generally said they felt safe attending the Limit Soldier Reunion Tour.
“When I think about the last incident, is it good to bring someone good after the bad,” May said. “We don’t always want to talk about the bad, we want to talk about the good.”
“I’ve been to a lot of games here. “A lot of events at Ladd Pebbles Stadium,” said Nicholson. “I feel that this is the perfect stadium because of its large space. We have security here. The police are here. It’s a good time. “
More big hip-hop artists are planned for Ladd-Peebles. Gucci Mane, Moneybagg Yo and Mannie Fresh are expected to take part Saturday, May 28.
