Lil Wayne Missed Show Over Low Ticket Sales, Promoter Threatens to Sue

Lil Wayne refused to take the stage at East Hanover High School in Wilmington, NC this past Sunday because of low ticket sales, and he may now face a lawsuit over the snub. According to WECT 6, Weezy sat on his tour bus for over three hours waiting for the venue to fill up, but ultimately pulled the plug on the performance when his requirement for an audience of at least 2,000 was not met. Now, Mitchell Entertainment, who promoted the event, plans to sue Wayne over the fiasco. “Between the time my client contracted with him, and the time he had the concert he had these other legal problems, and it affected him negatively with ticket sales here in Wilmington,” said Duke Linberry, an attorney representing Mitchell Entertainment. Linberry also cites the initial controversy over the concert and the fact that it was canceled and then rescheduled, as reasons for low ticket sales. The attorney assured WECT 6 that all concertgoers will receive refunds for the tickets they purchased.

    What up ! One Love to all! Lil wayne made a bad move! He is a businessman! He didn’t want to work for free!( would you!) If , I was Weezy—> I would make my set short yet sweet! Give ‘em! what they pay for! Sometimes, a small crowd is more crunk then a bunch of wallflowers! I did shows! Most of the time your paper is up front! From the looks of things they wanted to pay him later! Lack of crowd then means lack of money! Remember! Wezzy always spits Money! Money!Dollar bill,Ya’ll Dollar bill yall B@tch I’m paid b@tch I’m Paid! Money stacked so high Little N@ggaz can’t see me! Too much money in the way! Remember! the last page of Wayne in xxl April 07! You know the one the xxit page! Food for thought! My minds always hungry!-aka Blaze1 aka calvin myspace.com/morbidmusikk

It was all on the radio, I have no idea how they expected to hold 4,00 when the basketball court only holds about probably less than 300 people. With no air conditioning or nothin cramped in there for $30 that is dumb… Then after all that he don’t show up, and nobody got there money back!!! wow weezy lost respect
