Yung Lean's Minneapolis concert canceled after terrorist bomb threat on Reddit

Swedish rapper Yung Lean was supposed to bring his slow, sad raps to Minneapolis Sunday night.

But the Fine Line Music Cafe in downtown Minneapolis was cleared, and the concert canceled, after an apparent bomb threat was posted to Reddit.

That post, published Sunday evening, identified the rapper and venue by name, and pitched the threat — real or hoax; that part's still to be determined — as part of a radical Islamic terrorist attack aimed at Americans.

Here's a screenshot of the post itself, with its shabby English (and reasoning), along with a response from someone who says he or she just had to "evacuate a venue full of people" because of it.

A police search of the building didn't turn up any evidence of explosives, according to the Associated Press, which adds that the threat led to a 90-minute shutdown of several blocks. Even with no bomb, it was ultimately determined the show must not go on.

Yung Lean, for his part, says he was disappointed about that outcome, tweeting that he "wanted to play the show but due to circumstances it wont work."

First Avenue, which booked the show, apologized on behalf of the Fine Line for the cancellation, and said ticket-holders should contact them today for more information.

Rescheduling any time soon might be tricky: Yung Lean's U.S. tour is headed to the West Coast for a series of gigs before heading back to Europe in mid-April.
