Tens of thousands of people had to evacuate the Great Lawn on Saturday night, as chaos took over momentarily and Mayor de Blasio announced the big Homecoming Concert could still go on (it did not go on).

The rousing show at Forest Hills Stadium culminated in a full-length set by George Clinton on his 80th birthday.

And yes, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Senator Chuck Schumer were in attendance and back at it.

The “It’s Time For Hip Hop” concert also featured Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, Busy Bee… and Chuck Schumer rapping.

There will be concerts in every borough in August, and outside of the big Central Park show, the focus will be on hip-hop.

As for getting in, you'll need a ticket along with your proof of vaccination — 80% of the tickets will be free, with VIP tickets also available for purchase.

"This is going to be an amazing, memorable, once in a lifetime week in NYC," Mayor de Blasio said. The concert will take place in August.
