Kanye West's scheduled performance on Sunday, June 5, 2016, at NYC's Governor's Ball was canceled due to weather issues. So instead, he made a pop-up appearance on stage with Big Sean at Hot 97's Summer Jam in New Jersey. His impromptu performance went great, but it's what happened later on that evening that got a bit out of hand, when another canceled surprise show sent fans into pandemonium.
The "Life of Pablo" rapper initially took to Twitter after the show to announce a surprise late-night concert in the city. "Show at 2am SOLD OUT," he wrote.
"We're doing PABLO at 2 am in Manhattan," his creative director Virgil Abloh added.
Though a location was never announced, fans starting gathering by the hundreds outside of Webster Hall, a sizable venue that Governor's Ball was using for some of its performances.
The scene got chaotic quickly when gatherers caught wind that the show was a no-go, around 1:45 A.M.
"There is no late show at Webster Hall tonight. Please get home safely," the concert hall tweeted.
Virgil posted a photo to Instagram, announcing the cancellation because of a "safety priority."
Police were called in to help quell the masses, which had overtaken the streets outside of the venue.
But at some point after 2 A.M, Yeezus and Travis Scott appeared from out of the sunroof of a car, amping up the group even more. Though they couldn't make it out into the street or concert hall to perform with such large crowds.
Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian West, who was taking Snapchat videos during the car ride, tweeted her apologies later on. "Thank you all for coming out at 2am. Promise he will make up this pop up show," she wrote.
