Governors Ball unfortunately had to cancel today's festivities, including Kanye West's headlining set, but nearby festival Hot 97 Summer Jam is still on, having only had to cancel their outdoor side stage (Chance the Rapper's set included). Now Kanye has been added to Summer Jam, which is going on as we speak. It was announced by his collaborator Virgil Abloh on Instagram, who first wrote that he was also playing a 2 AM show at TBA Manhattan location, but then changed it to "PABLO details being sorted. update shortly."
UPDATE: It's at Webster Hall, according to 2 Chainz:
It's official, and officially sold out:
UPDATE 2: Webster Hall tweeted that there is no show:
Team Kanye Daily now posted a video of Kanye saying "Call the mayor and shut down a block about four streets and put screens so they can have a party outside. I know it's sold out already":

UPDATE: Kanye played Summer Jam. Here's some of HotNewHipHop's report:
Though the bill originally read "GOOD MUSIC with Big Sean and Pusha T," Kanye entered the stage with his labelmates, as did Desiigner, Travi$ Scott, and honorary GOOD member 2 Chainz.
The GOOD crew dropped a slew of its collab anthems, including "Mercy" and the brand new "Champions," the first single off Cruel Winter.
And some videos:
While Kanye didn't play NYC last night, other members of the G.O.O.D. Music crew played SOB's at 1 AM, including Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Travi$ Scott and Desiigner. Here's a video:
