Police are concerned over public safety

Kano concert cancelled
Kano has been forced to cancel his gig tomorrow ( in London.

Police are concerned over ‘public safety’ and have announced that the venue, The Scala in King’s Cross, will be closed for the night.

The rapper has responded to the decision, telling NME.COM: “I have performed in London practically my whole career and there have never been any problems. It’s where I started out and for me there’s no better place to perform.”

He added: “It’s a shame that on my first ever UK tour I am unable to play to my home town. I am sorry for my fans that the show couldn’t happen this time round. I’ll be back.”

A statement issued from Scotland Yard said: “Police wish to bring the following to the notice of ticket holders of the event that was due to be held at La Scala nightclub in Pentonville Road, N1, on Thursday October 27 featuring Kano plus special guests.

“This event has been cancelled and the venue will be shut for the evening.”

Concert organisers Metropolis Music have also spoken out about the cancellation, saying: “We have been instructed by the police that we cannot go ahead with the Kano concert at the Scala on Thursday (October 27). The police have acquired intelligence that unsavoury characters intended to cause trouble at the concert. This intelligence was received from Operation Trident.”

They added: “The police have stated that this is no reflection on Kano and have had no problems at previous events that he has performed at in London. There are no plans to reschedule the show at this time and customers are advised to obtain a refund at point of purchase.”
