Die-hard fans crowded the stage before Ghostface took the stage. Beau Boyd, who sold tickets at the front door, said the attendance was slightly more than 150.

"I don't really come out here that much, but I wish I did," said Ghostface. "Because y'all giving me a lot of energy and that's what I like." Ghostface, formerly Ghostface Killah, was a founding member of the New York based rap crew Wu-Tang Clan.
