Rapper arrested on gun charge, postpones Oakdale show


WALLINGFORD –  A rapper orginally scheduled to perform at the Oakdale Theatre Saturday was arrested on gun charges in Chicago Thursday. The show has been postponed to March 24, the Oakdale announced Friday.

Rapper G Herbo, a 22-year-old legally named Herbert Wright, was charged with one count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon after a traffic stop, according to Chicago police. Two other men were also charged.

The Oakdale announced the postponement on its Instagram page Friday evening.

Jim Bozzi, vice president of marketing with Live Nation, which owns the Oakdale, said the decision to postpone was made by the promoter. Bozzi couldn’t comment on the reasons.  

The Oakdale said all tickets will be honored on March 24. Refunds are available at the point of purchase.
