Published Nov 20, 2012A$AP Rocky just can't catch a break when it comes to playing Toronto, as the rapper's rescheduled performance was cancelled last night (November 19) due to a bomb threat.
The show at the Sound Academy was intended to make up for an axed October date. But as AUX reports, things got dicey at the venue when police were called in before the show, and the doors didn't open at 8 p.m., as promoted.
Concertgoers apparently got restless as they stood outside in line, with rumours swirling over the area that someone had been shot, AUX reports, but it was soon confirmed that a bomb threat had been placed. K-9 units were then sent in to sweep the building.
Police have yet to comment on the legitimacy of the threat, but according to AUX, the call to police about the bomb was traced and investigated, and apparently it was real enough for the show to be called off.
In the wake of the cancellation, Rocky took to Twitter to confirm the potentially catastrophic event and to let off some steam.
"ALL THIS WORK TO GET ACROSS THE FUCCKIN BORDER FOR MY SHOW TO BE CANCELLED BCUZ OF A BOGUS ASS BOMB THREAT!!!! THIS SHIT EXTRA LAME...," he wrote, later adding, "THIS IZ FUCKED UP , NOT FAIR AT ALL, ALL THAT WORK TO GET PASS THE BORDER, I FUCKKIN CANT BELIEVE THIS SHIT, FML, FUCK!!! IM SOO BORED NOW!!"
It's yet to be announced if another make-up date is in the works, but A$AP Rocky is set to play another rescheduled show tonight (November 21) at Montreal's Metropolis.
