The concerts were scheduled to take place between Friday and Monday at Irving Plaza, where T.I. held his concert, or its sister venue, Gramercy Theatre, both in Manhattan.
Consequence of Sound points out that four of the six canceled shows are rappers; the other two are rock bands with references to guns in their names.
Live Nation pulled the plug on four hip-hop acts: Joey Bada$$, Mac Miller, Vince Staples and YG. Canadian rock duo Black Pistol Fire's Saturday show at Gramercy Theatre has been moved to Saint Vitus Bar. A Guns N' Roses cover band, Appetite for Destruction, was also scheduled to perform Friday.
"In light of last week's tragic event, we are acting with an overabundance of caution and coordinating a going forward strategy with the New York Police Department that may also include a curfew," a representative for Irving Plaza and Gramercy Theatre toldRolling Stone. "Because these discussions with New York Police Department are ongoing, we will be postponing a few of our upcoming shows."
However, the NYPD has denied any involvement in the cancelation of concerts, according to Rolling Stone.
Consequence of Sound reported that most shows in the week after the shooting ran as scheduled.
Brooklyn-based rapper Troy Ave was arrested in connection with the shootings at T.I.'s concert.
