Tory Lanez Concert Shut Down By Police

Tory Lanez concert was ended over the weekend after a riot broke out at the venue where he was performing.

The R&B singer was appearing in Midland, Texas when things turned sour. The singer reportedly labelled security at the show “bitch asses” before all hell broke loose. The crowd then allegedly threw chairs, bottles, and tables as tensions began to escalate further before the police stepped in and ended the show prematurely.

The video shows Lanez attempting to bring the crowd closer to him before the riot started, but as he started his song Diego security rushed onto the stage and tried to halt the show. He dodged out of their way and continued with the track as long as he could.

Fans then began to flee the venue as violence began to erupt within the crowd; according to TMZ, the report filed after the incident states that the promoter and venue owners are both considering legal action against Lanez for inciting the riot.

There were also unconfirmed reports of someone possessing a firearm but fortunately no shots were fired. Multiple people were arrested though at the Austin Music Hall, which was a part of the SXSW festival. Lanez headlined the night while K Camp and Dipset also featured on the bill.

Lanez has been in the news recently as he has been involved in a beef with Drake. The Canadian rapper referenced him in his track Summer Sixteen, but the singer seemed unfazed by the diss.

“I’m just a young kid. Me personally, I don’t think I’m even hot enough to be getting dissed but hey, at the end of the day he must look at me as a threat. The music is appealing, and I don’t know why he did it but more blessings to him,” Lanez said at the time.

“I’m a fucking Drake fan. Drake could diss me 20,000 times, and I would never diss him.”
