One attendee told Fox News Digital, “I want my money back, I didn’t pay $400 to see nothing.” Another explained that they were happy that Rock stuck to the original jokes saying, “We didn’t come here just for that.”

After the early show ended around 9 p.m., lines were already forming for the 10 o’clock show. Boston Police stood by ready to react to unruly behavior. 

At the middle of the show, there was an altercation involving a father and son. They interrupted the show, prompting Rock to stop the show and ask them, “Are you all right?”

The father-son duo was promptly removed by security and Rock resumed his show. However, moments later, Rock once again paused the show since attendees could hear muffled yelling from the hallway coming through the door.
