New York - What was supposed to be a surprise Kanye West show in New York City quickly turned to chaos as thousands of fans descended on the venue.

More than 4 000 people swarmed Webster Hall, which only holds 1 500, early Monday morning for the pop-up show. They climbed on top of cars, dumpsters and scaffolding and hung out of windows hoping to get a better view.

The New York Daily News reports West hinted on social media that he was going to do the show after the Governor's Ball on Sunday was cancelled due to the weather. West had been scheduled to perform.

The secret show was hinted to start at 02:00, and according to West's Twitter page was sold out by 01:00.

Shortly before 02:00, Webster Hall tweeted that there would be no show.

French Montana shared this snap of the chaos in his Instagram account:
