fbpx Lawsuit Filed Against Migos For a Riot During Concert | The Beat 99.9 FM

On Monday, two lawsuits were filed against Migos was hit with two new lawsuits which claims that the Atlanta rap trio was responsible for inciting a riot at a 2015 concert in Albany, New York. The suit was filed by owners of The Armory who alleged that those attending the concert were “stabbed, robbed, beaten, severely harmed, and injured” as a result of the concert brawl. The Armory owners also claimed that the trio “were seen laughing and egging the crowd on” in the midst of the chaos. In addition to the riot, the suit alleged that Migos failed to appear at a pre-show meet and greet, delayed the show for hours which caused the crowd to become “agitated.”

 

This same issue was reported in 2015, with a video from that night that showed concert attendees throwing objects and a metal gate around and six people were injured. “The unwarranted negative media attention and subsequent government actions against the Armory stemming from the event has placed an undue burden upon the Armory’s operations and its ability to attract programming,” a spokesperson for The Armory said in a statement. “Therefore, on the eve of the three year anniversary of that fateful concert, the Armory is taking this important action to remedy the losses incurred from and arising from that event.”
