The Daily News reports that ABC decided not to book the 23-year-old Canadian rapper Drake for a free show in Central Park on July 16 after the NYPD told the city Parks Department that Parks' security plan wasn't sufficient, 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 performers such as 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.
A free Drake show was recently cancelled after the crowd swelled beyond expected capacity.
Is Drake getting the shaft or will the show go on?
