Lil Wayne Concert Cancelled Because He Refused To Go Through The Stadium Security Checkpoint
Lil Wayne fans will be offered refunds for a cancelled show after the rapper refused to pass through a security check to enter the arena.
Instead, he opted to skip the concert altogether.
A statement Sunday by managers of the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia says Lil Wayne refused to enter the building when security workers sought to apply “the venue’s standard safety procedures.” The arena’s management says it wasn’t willing to make an exception for the headliner of Saturday night’s show “and jeopardize safety.”
Lil Wayne’s representative did not respond to an email seeking comment Sunday.
The rest of the show went on with entertainers 2 Chainz, Tory Lanez and Cardi B.
