Future concert moved to House Of Blues
The Future’s free concert will take place at the House of Blues at 10 p.m. for tonight as it created chaos in the strip in the afternoon. Fans have started lining up at 9 a.m. even if the concert was announced to start by midnight. The mob started getting rowdy when wristbands were finally distributed around 1 p.m., but only to the first 500 people. As the mob became uncontrollable, the cops responded in full riot gear.
By 2 p.m., the world famous Sunset Boulevard between Doheny Drive and San Vicente Boulevard in West Hollywood was shot down. By 3 p.m., the midnight concert which was supposed to be the last in a series of four free shows from Future to promote “Dirty Sprite 2,” was canceled, CBS reported.
Sunset Boulevard was reopened by 5pm.
The Ataris, which was scheduled to headline the midnight show, carried on according to an announcement posted to the group’s Facebook Page.
