Were you excited to take in the free Jay-Z concert at the Ed Sullivan Theater? Unfortunately that excitement is all you’ll get. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced today that the Jay-Z performance was canceled after issues arose at a recent free concert by Drank and Hanson.
The incident occurred when 15,000-20,000 shouting fans tried to shove their way into Manhattan’s South Street Seaport for a free concert. The crowds actions left dozens injured after the show leaked online.
The free Jay-Z show was meant to be a secret, but like the Drake/Hanson show details were leaked and city officials feared another riot type atmosphere could be created.
