Yeezus shuts down NYC.
After his headlining set at the Governors Ball was canceled due to inclement weather, Yeezy joined his G.O.O.D. Music family onstage at Hot 97’s Summer Jam. Then, things got even more interesting when he teased a surprise show at Webster Hall.
Within minutes, more than 4,000 fans crowded the streets in hopes of getting the highly-sought-after tickets. In time, they covered up two streets around the block, jumping on cars, and shoving their way around, according to the New York Daily News. Despite this, only one person was arrested for disorderly conduct. Still, in the wake of the mayhem, Webster Hall shut the performance down.
Kim Kardashian filmed her husband’s reactions to the pandemonium, as he tried to save the show from cancelation. “Call the mayor and shut down the block about four streets,” he said on her Snap. “Put screens up so they could have a party outside, I know it’s sold out already.”
After the cancelation, Kanye was seen riding around the city, being followed by a mob of fans. Despite rumors of pop-up shows at other venues, Kimye confirmed the cancelations via Kardashian’s Snapchat. “We’re in bed,” she said in her story. “We tried. He tried so hard. But it was just bigger. The cops just really wouldn’t allow it.”
She also tweeted that Yeezus would make up for it.
