ABC Pulls Out On Free Drake Concert Due To Security Issues

Published July 8, 2010

Drake's outdoor concert plans have been derailed once again.

According to the NY Daily News, ABC's "Good Morning Ameica" summer concert series has backed out on booking the Grammy-nominated rapper due to security issues the NYC's Park's Department could not handle.

The NYPD explained to the Parks Department that a certain level of security was needed in order for the concert to move forward. A spokesperson from ABC revealed that they were interested in booking Drake but nothing had been confirmed.

The extra security precaution is a result of Drake's last outdoor outing at Manhattan's South Street Seaport where concertgoers started a mini riot when they found out Drake wasn't performing. City officials canceled the event due to the unexpected outcome for the free show.

Label reps for Drake have yet to comment on ABC canceling the performance.
