ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ Pulls Plug On Drake’s Free Central Park Concert Out Of Security Concerns


It’s over – before it even happened.

The plug has been pulled on another free outdoor concert featuring Drake in New York City before the superstar rapper even stepped off the tour bus, the Daily News has learned.

ABC decided not to book the 23-year-old Canadian rapper for a July 16 show in Central Park after the NYPD told the city Parks Department that Parks’ security plan wasn’t up to snuff, Parks and police sources said.

The concert was going to be part of ABC’s “Good Morning America” summer concert series, which has already featured megastars Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers and Alicia Keys.

We were interested in having Drake perform, but he was never officially booked,” an ABC spokesperson said yesterday without elaborating.

A spokesperson for Drake confirmed there was a “booking in place,” but declined to comment further.

The Parks Department could not come up with the security staffing that the NYPD thought would be necessary for such an event, police sources said.

This is the second time a New York show featuring the “Find Your Love” rapper has been called off in less than a month.

Drake’s June 15 free concert at South Street Seaport was abruptly canceled after 25,000 unruly fans who showed up to hear the rap phenom tossed chairs, bottles and flowerpots.
