Kanye West’s concert plans got out of hand when insanely excited fans packed the NYC streets — to the point where the NYPD was called in to stop an insane stampede as Kanye rode through the crowd. Click through to see the wild pics!
It was complete and utter mayhem when 4000 Kanye West fans flooded streets around Webster Hall, near Union Square in NYC to see a surprise Yeezy concert on June 5. As Kanye rode through the streets on top of a car to the delight of incredulous fans, the chaos only got worse. Click through to see the insane situation for yourself after the jump!
After Kanye’s headlining performance was canceled at Governor’s Ball on June 4 due to severe weather conditions, fans who had paid good money to see the prolific rapper were disappointed, to put it lightly. But Kanye surprised his NYC fans by announcing a show the next night, immediately after his set at Summer Jam in New Jersey, hitting Webster Hall around midnight.
Or at least he tried to! So many fans showed up to the venue that the show was ultimately canceled. Kanye’s car could only inch through the streets as he drove through and waved to his adoring fans, all 4000 of them! They partied and rioted, as police attempted to get them under control and out of the way.
How crazy are these pics? Kanye looks like he’s practicing for his 2020 White House run, because he looks positively presidential waving to the crowd in his motorcade! The crowd was so intense that he even tried to convince NYC mayor Bill de Blasio to allow him to perform in the street outside of Webster Hall so that everybody who showed up could see him! Wouldn’t that have been amazing? The NYPD would really have had their work cut out for them trying to control the dancing if that happened!
