Yo Gotti Baltimore Show Oversold
February 26, 2010 at 2:13 PM (PT)
Rapper and POLO GROUNDS recording artist YO GOTTI made a club appearance in BALTIMORE and caused a near-riot. BALTIMORE police made an emergency petition THURSDAY (FEBRUARY 25th) to the city’s liquor board seeking to immediately suspend the alcohol license of THE VELVET ROPE nightclub after authorities said hundreds of patrons holding tickets were locked out of an oversold performance and nearly caused a riot on a downtown street.
Police said it took over 50 officers to control the crowd that showed up early THURSDAY morning to see YO GOTTI. The club’s management called the show "a promoter’s nightmare" and said it came down to the promoter selling too many tickets. They have issued an apology to anyone who could not get in and said refunds would be made. No large shows such as this are scheduled in the future.
