Live Nation Postpones A Bunch Of Hip Hop Shows After Troy Ave Shooting

By HHL Editors

The fallout of the Troy Ave shooting incident, which happened backstage during a T.I. show at New York City's Irving Plaza, has begun.

YG, Vince Staples, Mac Miller and Joey Badass concerts that were supposed to take place at Irving Plaza or NYC's Gramercy Theatre in the next week have been postponed.

"In light of last week’s tragic event, we are acting with an overabundance of caution and coordinating a going forward strategy with the New York Police Department that may also include a curfew,” a spokesperson for the Irving Plaza and Gramercy Theatre told Rolling Stone. “Because these discussions with New York Police Department are ongoing, we will be postponing a few of our upcoming shows.”
The NYPD has denied that they requested any postponements, and has said that the decision was made by booking behemoth Live Nation, which owns both venues.

Two non-rap shows -- Canadian rock duo Black Pistol Fire and Guns N Roses cover band Appetite for Destruction -- have also been postponed.
