Grimes Ends Concert Early After ‘Disturbing’ Earlier Incidentby Dee Lockett


Grimes cut short her second performance at Barclays Center, opening up for Florence and the Machine on Wednesday night, following a "disturbing," unspecified earlier incident. Brooklyn Vegan reports that before the singer played "World Princess Part II," she told the audience, "We just had a really disturbing thing happen to us today, so sorry if my voice is shaking. It’s been kind of a fucked day. There's a lot of fucked things going on in the news. I apologize if I'm having a lot of trouble keeping it together." Midway through the song, she reportedly walked off the stage abruptly, the lights in the arena turned back on, and her set was over with no explanation. Her label 4AD told Brooklyn Vegan, "Unfortunately, we are unable to give a comment right now." But a fan Twitter affiliated with Grimes says it got in contact with her manager, who said Grimes is "doing okay." Watch footage from the concert below.
