Lil' Wayne manager Cortez Bryant has come forward to speak on the rapper's third New York show cancelation tonight.
News broke out yesterday (January 20) that Weezy canceled his performance in Rochester.
Rapper Lil' Wayne has canceled a scheduled appearance at the Blue Cross Arena for the third time. Jeff Calkins, the arena's general manager, said he had not yet heard a reason for canceling the concert, which was set for Wednesday. Refunds are available at the point of sale: Consumers may take tickets to the Blue Cross box office or contact Ticketmaster (585-232-1900) by Feb. 6. (Democrat & Chronicle)
Bryant has now confirmed the cancelation.
"Now that Wayne's doing these bigger shows, he wants to make sure that all of his fans are getting the same experience," he said. "It would have been too difficult to travel with the entire band, then turn around and head to Calgary the next day. We didn't want the Rochester fans to get any less of a show because of logistics. We wanted to deliver the same caliber show we've delivered along the tour." (All Hip Hop)
Weezy is currently on his his nationwide "I Am Music" tour.
The cross country tour will feature special appearances by T-Pain, Keyshia Cole, Gym Class Heroes and Keri Hilson. Beginning on the East Coast, Weezy will make stops in Houston, Oakland, Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte and other spots before ending in January. (SOHH)
