Ke$ha Paper Magazine Free Concert Cancelled Following Drake/Hanson Debacle
A free Ke$ha concert at Manhattan’s South Street Seaport featuring Ke$Ha has been cancelled amid fears the show could descend into chaos like a Drake/Hanson bill recently scrapped gig at the same location.
The rapper was due to play a free show hosted by Paper Magazine on June 15, but police officials pulled the plug on the event after overcrowding led to a near riot. Six people suffered minor injuries and two were arrested.
Now two more concerts due to take place at the venue have been cancelled by General Growth Properties, the company which owns the South Street Seaport — including the “TiK Tok” hitmaker’s free gig featuring Ratatat.
The firm have “chosen to cancel any forthcoming concerts in conjunction with Paper Magazine,” The New York Daily News said Friday.
