Drake's Free Concert Shut Down Over Heaving Crowds


Drake


The 'Best I Ever Had' hitmaker has to cancel his show at Manhattan's South Street Seaport after crowd control became a safety concern for organizers of the event.

A free concert by rapper Drake was shut down by New York police on Tuesday, June 15 after crowds became too much for authorities to handle. The "Best I Ever Had" hitmaker was due to perform a show supported by pop group Hanson at Manhattan's South Street Seaport but the heaving crowds prompted riot cops to bring the Paper Magazine gig to an end before it had even begun.

A source tells WENN, "It's canceled. Riot police shut it down." The gig was expected to mark the U.S. release of Drake's highly anticipated debut album "Thank Me Later", which hit music retailers on Tuesday, June 15.

Drake himself has addressed the mater. He told MTV News, "I am humbled by the crowd that showed up in support of my performance and the release of 'Thank Me Later'. I love performing for my fans, but unfortunately, the show was canceled by the NYPD due to overcrowding, leaving me without the chance to give my fans a real show. I'm thankful for the support that the fans have been giving me... I thank you now."
