BROOKLYN — Chaos erupted outside the Barclays Center on Thursday night after a mob of people tried to force their way into the arena for a hip-hop concert, arena officials said.
The Power 105.1 Powerhouse Show, featuring The Weeknd and French Montana, was sold out, but a crowd tried to bumrush the doors, prompting security to not let anyone in, Barclays Center spokeswoman Mandy Gutmann said in a statement.
"In order to provide a safe and secure environment for all guests, Barclays Center security worked with the New York Police Department to disperse the crowd," Gutmann said in a statement. "The doors were closed at this time, and no further entry was permitted into the event.
The NYPD said no arrests were made and no injuries were reported.
