Fetty Wap Backs Out of Forbes Under 30 Concert Following Accident in Jersey
The Forbes Under 30 concert on Penn’s Landing, which will cap off the Forbes Under 30 Summit happening in Philly from October 4th to 7th, hasn’t had the best of luck wrangling and, most importantly, keeping its talent. At first it was announced that Swedish DJ Avicii would perform with Hanson and electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling, but Avicii had to back out, claiming he needed some time off.
He was replaced by not one, but two (arguably even more exciting) performers: New Jersey hip-hop rising star Fetty Wap and pop sensation Shawn Mendes. Now, following a motorcycle accident last week in New Jersey that left him with a broken leg and a really sad Instagram update, it appears Fetty will be stepping down to be replaced by another hip-hop contemporary, A.S.A.P. Rocky.
On Saturday afternoon, in his hometown of Paterson, New Jersey, Mr. Wap was riding his motorcycle when it collided head on with another vehicle. According to his reps, “He was treated at a local hospital and is in stable condition.” Recent tweets from Wap’s account suggest that he is on a speedy path to recovery.
So now, the final lineup (God forbid, it changes again) for the Forbes Under 30 Concert is this: A$AP Rocky as headliner with Hanson, Lindsay Stirling, and Shawn Mendes performing throughout the night.
One thing that hasn’t changed is that this festival is totally free if you register here. 4,000 tickets will be given away to those who create an account with Global Citizen and send out a tweet from their platform.
The show takes place Tuesday, October 6th at Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing. Doors open at 6pm.
