Insane Clown Posse

Cops Are SCARED About

Our Halloween Concert

EXCLUSIVE

The Insane Clown Posse says they've been forced to relocate their Halloween concert ... after police in Royal Oak, Michigan voiced concerns about the "type of crowd they bring" ... TMZ has learned.

Of course, the "crowd" in question is the Juggalos -- a group which the FBI has classified as a dangerous street gang.  ICP says the FBI is wrong ... they're just REALLY passionate fans. 

A rep for ICP tells TMZ ... the group had booked the Royal Oak Music Theater for the venue of their "Hallowicked" show -- and it had nearly sold out when suddenly the venue decided to cancel the event. 

ICP is convinced ROMT backed out at the behest of the police ... who raised several issues, including the FBI's assessment of the Juggalos as a gang.

The Royal Oak Police Dept. tells TMZ ... they never FORCED the venue to cancel, but did ask them to "reconsider" because of the "the type of crowd they bring."

The cops tell us ... they were also “concerned about the amount of resources they had available that night.”

ICP has since relocated their show to The Fillmore theater in Detroit -- and insist "Halloween will not be spoiled."

Hmmm....translation - when the crowd starts tearing your place to pieces, the police not going to be there to stop them.

What are you talking about, this ****wads are Christians, LOL, just a bunch of misfits with no one to love them, so they love painted fat ****s. Don't **** with people that have no one to love them though, they have nothing to lose.

Juggallos are like Deadheads, only without the spiritual enlightenment, or Jerry Garcia, or the community spirit, or the groundbreaking music, and about 50 years too late.
OK, they are nothing like Deadheads.

Cops are not "scared" as in fearful of the ICP they are using good judgement and fearful of what could happen to patrons of the concert. Get over 10,000 drunk and high people together dressed in stupid clown faces I'm pretty sure someone will get hurt.

wow... what is with the hate on the clown? Some of the nicest, sweetest people I have meet were "juggalo's". I have known a few of them. I don't understand the hate. Where's your clown love? I wouldn't dress up personally, and would shy away from a "gathering" . The most stupidest thing I have ever heard of was the FBI labeling Juggalo's as a gang.... smh. ..

Yes Royal Oak couldn't handle an ICP concert. Since Royal oak has become a trendy/hipster area.

Not every ICP fan is a "drunk" or "high" or be a racist. Sure I will agree there are few.... alot of "Bad apples" That make the normal Juggalos look like A**holes.
Did anyone here hear on Howard Stern a while back. Interview a Jimmy Buffett fan who was clearly drunk talk about why their isn't any Black fans? Now that was some KKK talk.

Gang or not, if violence occurs when they congregate that is more than enough to demand action.
