Sundance 2012: Drake Rocks Bing Bar [Photos]

6 years ago by Reg Seeton

Drake rocked the Sundance Film Festival with a private performance at the Bing Bar after fans braved the Sundance snow for almost three hours. The Grammy-nominated rapper was severely delayed due to the blizzard that took over the Sundance Film Festival these last couple of days.

Despite avalanches, road closures and plane delays, Drake finally made it to the Bing Bar and gave an epic performance that shut the house down. As the crowd waited for Drake, Parks and Recreatio” star Aziz Ansari performed some stand-up, sarcastically talking about his surprise at a rapper not being on time.

The Drake crowd was unruly as Ansari tried to get things started, which led to Cuba Gooding Jr. storming the stage to get the crowd to calm down and listen. Drake finally took the stage around 1am, performing his hits and “Crew Love” for the first time ever on stage.

Joining Drake at Sundance 2012 and the Bing Bar were celebrities Quincy Jones, Ryan Kwanten, “The Bachelor” Ben Flajnik, Jesse Williams, Will Forte, Aubrey Plaza, Donald Faison, Angela Kinsey and Aaron Paul.
