Police in riot gear is pretty much never something that anyone wants to see at a rap concert — or ever — but it’s especially not something that anyone wants to see at a rap concert given the recent spate of tragic police killings and the current social/political climate. But that’s exactly what Future fans were faced with today, as TMZ reports. Future is finishing up a string of four free “Salute The Fans” shows by playing a free concert at the Roxy in L.A. at midnight tonight, and, as these things go, people began lining up outside the 500-capacity venue at 9AM. When wristbands starting getting passed out at around 1PM, things got crazy, with the much-over-500 crowd spilling out onto Sunset Blvd. That’s when the police showed up, equipped with menacing-looking riot guns, to try to keep things in order. Seems like a bad scene.
UPDATE: It’s cancelled.
Future will no longer be performing at The Roxy tonight. Please follow @1future for updates.
