Last month’s disastrous free Drake concert in NYC has left a lasting impression on the NYPD.

ABC pulled the plug on their planned July 16th free concert in Central Park featuring Drake which was to be part of ABC’s “Good Morning America” summer concert series after the NYPD alerted the network that the city’s park security plan wasn’t sufficient.

From the New York Daily News:

“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.
