EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Hip-hop and R&B radio station Hot 97’s annual Summer Jam concert at MetLife Stadium was delayed for short time Sunday night as severe weather moved into the area.

According to the MetLife Stadium Twitter account, concertgoers are being allowed to return to their seats, saying the threat of severe weather has passed.

“Thank you for your patience… Return to your seats for Cardi!” the Hot 97 Twitter account tweeted at 10:15 p.m.

Earlier Sunday night both the MetLife Twitter account and Hot 97 Twitter account had instructed concertgoers to leave the outdoor seating bowl and take shelter inside the stadium due to weather.

Hot 97 originally tweeted just before 10 p.m. that the show was being delayed due to the threat of lightning in the area and that the show would resume once the weather was clear.

The popular, annual all-day concert sees many acts perform short sets into the night at the New Jersey venue. This year’s show includes artists like Cardi B, Meek Mill, Migos and more.
