Rapper Drake has seen a second planned New York concert axed in a month – amid safety fears at the location in Central Park.

Bosses at TV network ABC were set to book the Canadian star for a show as part of their Good Morning America concert series, in which Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys have already wowed crowds in the Big Apple.

But officials at the city’s Parks Department were unable to provide the level of security demanded by cops – and the planned show on 16 July has been axed, according to the New York Daily News.

An ABC spokesman tells the publication, “We were interested in having Drake perform, but he was never officially booked.”

Last month, the rapper’s free concert at New York’s South Street Seaport was axed by cops for overcrowding after 25,000 fans descended on the area.
