Chief Keef‘s “Bang 3 Hologram Fest” at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles was shut down and forced to relocate right outside the venue on Friday night. A similar thing happened at Keef’s hologram concert in Indiana, where the show was then shut down after just one song, as pointed out by Billboard. According to the police, the Chicago artist and the company Hologram USA, who’s also responsible for bringing the Whitney Houston hologram, did not have the proper permits for the concert. Hologram USA founder Alki David released following statement, where he calls local law enforcement “pathetic.”
“The city of Los Angeles was clearly doing the dirty work of corporate giant AEG by shutting down Chief Keef’s festival. It was shaping up to be a great night at the lot and we had 80,000 fans watching on FilmOn.com. We are so pissed off we are planning to build a permanent venue for hologram concerts next to AEG’s Fonda Theater.”
The show reportedly featured a performance from 2Pac’s hologram and a Marilyn Monroe impersonator. While you might need to wait a bit until you can see Keef back on stage, you can still check out the second part of his Bang 3 album, which dropped earlier this week.
