Unfortunately, the RBK Now Playing events scheduled for today and Saturday in Manchester and London have been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. The police were unable to support the event and with the anticipated turnout, it would have been dangerous to continue with the event.
This looked like it was going to be a great event but unfortunately has been dogged by problems from the begining with date changes and now this cancellation. It is a shame that whilst companies are happy to use Hip Hop for promotional purposes the respect to the fans and artists still needs to be observed.
The vague reasons given alluding to police intervention perhaps point to a perceived notion that an event like this could cause trouble. What is the justification for this attitude?
Hopefully something like this can get re-scheduled and go off successfully.
