Lil Wayne Skips South Carolina Concert Over Security Issues
Fans waiting to see Lil Wayne perform in Columbia, S.C., at the annual Fall Ball were disappointed. That's because the Young Money head honcho skipped his set after having issues at a security check.
Tune was set to perform with the likes of 2 Chainz, Cardi B and Tory Lanez last night (Sept. 30), but apparently the rapper was not bool with passing through the security checkpoint. WLTX19 reports the Colonial Life Arena said in a statement that Weezy "elected not to come into the building through the venue's standard safety procedures."
While some venues let the stars of the show pass unchecked, the CLA was not having it. Weezy reportedly then decided to skip the show altogether. "The safety of its patrons, its performers, and its staff members is and continues to be the number one priority for Colonial Life Arena," the statement continues. "While we regret the artist's decision not to perform, Colonial Life Arena is not willing to bypass its security standards and jeopardize the safety of its patrons, performers, or staff members."
Colonial Life Arena will provide refunds starting tomorrow (Oct. 2).
Tune has an upcoming headlining show at the 2017 Rolling Loud Festival in the Bay Area. The other headliners for the show are Travis Scott and ScHoolboy Q. The lituation doesn't stop there as the lineup is full of popping acts like Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, XXXTentacion, PnB Rock and Playboi Carti, Kodak Black, Nef The Pharaoh and Lil Pump.
