UPDATE (2:00 p.m.): New York City Mayor, Bill de Blasio, took to his Twitter Monday afternoon to respond to Kanye's late night call. "@kanyewest @kimkardashian Great block parties are planned," he tweeted before adding, "@Chirlane & I can throw one w/ you to benefit NYC kids."
UPDATE (7:00 a.m.): After the Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music show at Webster Hall was canceled on Monday morning, Kanye and his crew reportedly tried to move the pop up concert to two other New York City venues, Trump SoHo and SOB's. The DONDA Twitter account announced the Trump SoHo show at about 3:20 a.m. Kim Kardashian later tweeted that Kanye plans to makeup the pop up show at some point.
SOB's sent this tweet out a short time later:
Producer Mike Dean also Periscoped the scene outside of Trump SoHo:
But once people started gathering around Trump SoHo, police and a manager for the hotel revealed that there would not be a Kanye and G.O.O.D. show there:
The show didn't happen at SOB's, either. Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, and Desiigner reportedly performed there, but not Kanye.
And eventually, Dean and Kim Kardashian used social media to explain that the Kanye show was not going to happen:
UPDATE (1:45 a.m.): Webster Hall just announced that there's not going to be a 2 a.m. Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music show at the venue. While the show was eventually canceled, the crowd outside the venue did get rather rowdy, as a car hood was trampled while police attempted to control the crowd. The NYPD reportedly used pepper spray at one point in an effort to get people to leave. Stay tuned for more updates.

Read the original story below.
Sunday was an interesting day for Kanye West, as his headlining set at Governors Ball was canceled due to severe weather conditions in New York City. 'Ye later joined his G.O.O.D. Music crew for a turnt up performance at Hot 97's Summer Jam, which was apparently just the warm up for what they have in store for the weekend.
Shortly after midnight on what's now Monday, word broke that Kanye and G.O.O.D. Music have locked in a performance at Webster Hall in Manhattan at 2 a.m. The show was first teased by Virgil Abloh on Instagram and later confirmed by 2 Chainz. Of course, lines have already started outside the venue, with tickets apparently only costing $10 to get in.
Interestingly enough, shortly after 2 Chainz confirmed the venue, footage hit Twitter of Kanye telling someone on the phone that they need to call the mayor and shut down four blocks around the venue so they can set up screens so that people who don't get in can watch the show. Naturally, it seems unlikely to happen in such a short time period, but it is the total Kanye thing to do.
The setlist for the upcoming show, which we'll update with footage of as it becomes available, looks similar to the Summer Jam one, with the crew planning to run through various hits such as "Clique" and "Mercy." So for a day that started in disappointment with the cancelation of his set at Governors Ball, Kanye is surely making it up to his fans in New York City in a big way. Stay tuned for footage of the concert as it becomes available.
