Chicago Redmoon Theater Cancels Chief Keef’s Hologram Concert



Chicago’s Redmoon Theater has backed out of holding Chief Keef’s much-anticipated hologram concert.

Debbie Saul, Redmoon’s director of marketing, emailed a statement to Chicago Sun Times that read, “Redmoon did not understand the full nature of the event. The event will not be taking place at Redmoon.”

Sosa was expected to appear at the Chicago concert via hologram from soundstage in Beverly Hills, CA. Attendees in Chicago will be required to make a $50 donation, which will benefit the family of baby Dillan Harris, who was killed Saturday, July 11 when his stroller was hit by a car.

According to Sosa’s FilmOn Networks management, the Glo Gang frontman isn’t able to appear in Chicago in person due to due to “outstanding warrants his legal team.”

The concert will stream online free of charge on FilmOn.TV.

Sosa confirmed the event is still on in a promotional video.

“Catch me this Friday, July 17 at a hologram in Chicago,” he said when promoting his “Stop The Violence Now” campaign. “Streaming live on FilmOn.TV.”

Father Michael Pfleger is one of Sosa’s biggest critics. Pfleger took to Facebook to blast the “Bang 3” rapper:

“Chief Keef has announced that he will hold a benefit concert to raise funds for his friend and the baby who were killed this past weekend….REALLY…Chief Keef is one of the reasons we have all this violence…he has been one of the encourager’s of the violence…..Instead of having a concert…why doesn’t he man up and acknowledge it’s time to stop this violence and APOLOGIZE for his part in it!!!! we don’t need a concert…we need PEACE……7 DEAD and 24 SHOT this weekend and he wants to do a concert…..Chief Keef….SHUT UP!!!!!” Pfleger’s post read.



At St. Sabina Church in front of a packed congregation, Pfleger added, “Let’s help get rid of the violence. Don’t think a concert is then going to wipe away what you do every day that supports the violence.”

Sosa issued a statement via FilmOn Networks in response to Pfleger’s comments that read, “I see the love in my son’s eyes and I know that I have changed the things I value. My cousin getting killed was the biggest lesson. I know he would want me to be a better person and do better.”
