Rick Ross Cancels Atlanta Show

Rick Ross was set to perform a concert this Friday, October 21 in Atlanta, but XXL has learned that the show has cancelled.

The Bawse was scheduled to hit the stage at the Tabernacle, but instead he will continue to recover from last week’s multiple seizures that he experienced on two separate flights.

“We are disappointed he had to cancel, but completely understand that Rick Ross needs to take care of…himself at this time,” concerts director George F. Baker III told local station WSB. “We hope he is better soon.”

Students who bought tickets for the show will be refunded their money.

Reps for Ross, from both Def Jam and Warner Bros., still have yet to comment on Ross’s health or the reason’s for his seizures.

On Tuesday, his MMG artist Wale wrote on Twitter, “Just kicked it. W/ @rickyrozay and@TheRealDJKhaled …we focused …I’m headed to chicago (sic)!!”

This is the third show Ross has scrapped since last week’s health scare. He was booked  for a concert in Memphis last Friday and another gig in North Carolina the following day, Saturday, was also cancelled. Next week, Ross is slated to perform in Philadelphia as a part of radio station Power 99’s “Powerhouse” celebration.
