POLICE SHUT DOWN DRAKE CONCERT IN NEW YORK

Rapper/singer Drake released his highly anticipated debut album Thank Me Later yesterday, and decided to throw a free concert in New York.

However the concert was later cancelled when 25,000 people turned up and proceeded to lose their minds and acted the fool for no good reason.

The crowd became unruly (fights broke out and rioting) which led to safety concerns.

According to WABC in New York, the crowd for the concert, which also had the singing band of brothers Hanson on the bill, swelled to 25,000 people — more than double the amount authorities had planned for.

WABC also added that arrests were made and non-life threatening injuries were reported.

……………………………………………………..

I’m not surprised this happened. There were well known acts on the bill and the concert was FREE!

  1. Any promoter with some damn sense would have made the concert free but only to people who were given tickets or something bia email or a website. That way only the people with free tickets would have shown up. You say free concert anywhere and you’re bound to get a whole heap of people show up for just that FREENESS!!!
