Future’s Free Los Angeles Show Shut Down, After Fans Crowd Street
Future was set to throw a free show in Los Angeles on Thursday (July 23), but his fans came out in droves, prompting the venue to shut things down.
After tweeting the venue earlier in the day, fans lined up at The Roxy in West Hollywood, hoping to score access to the midnight show. However, the venue's capacity is just 500... and way more showed up.
A large crowd filled the sidewalk and spilled onto Sunset Blvd. And, according to ABC 7, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies responded to the scene around 1 p.m. to control traffic and monitor the crowd.

Just hours before showtime, The Roxy announced the cancelation. However, Future plans to move the show to another local venue at a later date.
The free concert was the last in Future's four-city "Salute the Fans" series, which already made stops in Atlanta, Chicago, and New York.
