ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — After officials in one local town canceled a hip-hop concert, the show is back on.

Rapper Fabolous will now perform at Tropix Nightclub in Charlotte on Lake Avenue near Ontario Beach Park on Saturday. 


The show was supposed to happen at the Italian American Community Center in Gates, but Chief James VanBrederode called it off because the promoters didn't get a permit.

The decision follows two shootings at similar events in Gates in the past four months. 

"It doesn't matter what kind of music it is, the bottom line is we've had two shootings -- one in January and one in April -- and it doesn't matter what type of music it is we have to control these things before somebody gets killed," VanBrederode said.

The show starts at Tropix Nightclub on Saturday, April 20 at 8 p.m.
