Organizer Blames ‘Meddling’ Priest For Postponed Chief Keef’ Hologram Concert | Music News

 

As previously reported, Chief Keef was due to perform a benefit hologram concert in Chicago, memorializing a toddler who was killed by a car after fleeing the scene of rapper Capo’s fatal shooting. The Chicago Tribune reports that the concert has been postponed, and according to event organizer Alki David, it has been postponed following opposition from Reverend Michael Pfleger, who is a pastor at Chicago’s St. Sabina Catholic Church.

 

The meddling, attention seeking Father Pfleger, who bullied the owner of the downtown theatre to back out of his contract, will not succeed“, David said in an email to the Tribune. “He is exploiting this tragedy and taking money away from the victims and solid charities who are doing good work in Chicago“.

 

Pfleger had opposed the concert on Facebook earlier in the week and wrote: “Instead of having a concert … why doesn’t he man up and acknowledge it’s time to stop this violence and apologize for his part in it!!!!“. A representative of the theatre, Redmoon, told the Tribune that Pfleger didn’t make direct contact, but that they had not understood “the full nature of the event“.

My name is kira and I study Media and Communications. I live in the beautiful and wonderfully diverse city of Brighton. I've loved writing since a young child when I would write poems about my goldfish and leaves I found on the floor. (I'm hoping my writing style has slightly progressed since then!) I love listening to live music and try to go to as many gigs as possible. Follow my social media if you want to know more!
