John Hinckley Jr.’s Concert Canceled After Backlash To Reagan Shooter’s Gig

For the man who shot President Ronald Reagan, the performance will not go on.

The venue stated Wednesday that John Hinckley Jr.’s planned concert in Brooklyn, New York, has been canceled.

Hinckley, who was released from court supervision last week after attempting to assassinate President John F. Kennedy 41 years ago, has been seeking to begin a performance career. Several of his original songs have been uploaded to YouTube. He also becomes a member of Spotify.

Hinckley was originally scheduled for July 8 because it would be a “memorable night” and send a message that a criminal record “may be atoned for,” according to The Market Hotel on Instagram. However, it admitted that the planned event was enraging people to the point that it was posing a safety risk.

“If we were going to hold an event for the principal, and perhaps put people in danger in the process,” the venue said, “it shouldn’t be for some stunt booking – no offense to the artist.” “If we think the music was essential and transcended the infamy, we may feel otherwise, but that’s not the case here.”

The last constraints on Hinckley’s court-supervised life in Virginia were eliminated this week, and he became a free man.

In 1981, Hinckley shot Reagan outside a Washington hotel, wounded him, and partially paralyzed press secretary James Brady, as well as injured two other individuals. Brady passed away in 2014.

Hinckley spent the majority of his time in a Washington mental hospital after being ruled not guilty due to insanity.
