Update: Doctor Orders Lil Wayne to Cancel Canada Tour Dates
Lil Wayne’s America’s Most Wanted Tour dates in Canada have been canceled.
“Lil Wayne, due to illness, was advised by his doctors to cancel the Young Money Presents: America’s Most Wanted Music Festival tour stops in Western Canada, ” a press release from Universal reads. “The tour, headlined by Lil Wayne featuring Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy, Pleasure P and Jeremih, was scheduled to come through Vancouver and Edmonton on August 17th and 18th. Wayne, his band and crew arrived in Canada with full intention of performing but were forced to cancel the dates due to doctor-mandated rest. Young Money Presents America’s Most Wanted Music Festival will continue their tour routing as planned and extends an apology to the fans for the cancelation.”
The Edmonton Journal reports that Weezy’s initial tour stop yesterday (August 17) in Vancouver was nixed and the plug has been pulled on his concert in Rexall Place tonight. According to a press release the shows have been canceled due to “circumstances beyond Live Nation’s control.”
Fans will be issued refunds at their points of purchase.
According to the Time Colonist, Weezy’s show last night was only announced 15 minutes before the doors were scheduled to open at the GM Place.
The Young Money Presents: America’s Most Wanted Music Festival’s next stop is scheduled for Englewood, Colorado on August 20. –Elan Mancini
