Fifteen-year-old singer Austin Mahone visited Chicago today to have a simple meet-and-greet with his fans when he was over-run by Mahomies.
Austin, who had been sending Keek’s all morning keeping his fans updated on his trip to Chicago, at first told his Mahomies NOT to meet him at Navy Pier because there were too many people expected.
After moving the event to “The Bean” sculpture in Millennium Park, thousands of Austin fans rushed to the area causing quite an influx of excited and hyperventilated young girls.
Police quickly whisked Austin and his mother away to a secure building next to the park until they could figure out what to do.
The meetup was eventually cancelled out of concern for the safety of Austin, his Mother, and his fans.
Police told the singer that if he plans to use the park in the future he needs his own security team and must notify the city several weeks in advance so they can plan for crowd control.
Mahone took to twitter to tell his fans that the event had been cancelled.
“Mahomies, it’s really hard for me to say this but i can’t do a meetup on this trip - the police won’t let me do it, I’m so sorry... Dont worry I’m okay and you didn’t do anything wrong!!”
