Lil Wayne Cancels Rochester Show For Third Time

Lil Wayne postponed last night’s (1/21) concert at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, NY, for logistical reasons, according to the Democrat and Chronicle newspaper website. It was the rapper’s third cancellation at the venue since October.

Lil’ Wayne‘s booking agent, Ujaama Talent Agency, said the concert was postponed due to “logistics of his band” without adding any details, according to the newspaper site.
Concert promoter Edward Strickland said he is considering filing a lawsuit against the rapper, who is scheduled to kick off the next leg of his tour today (1/22) in Calgary, Alberta. Strickland, GM of RMF Productions, told the local media that he owes at least $200,000 for the event, which includes a $100,000 deposit paid to the artist.

Strickland reportedly said that Ujaama told him they will consider including Rochester in the next leg of the tour, but the promoter isn’t sure that local vendors or concertgoers will give Lil’ Wayne a fourth chance.

The rapper’s Oct. 26 show in Rochester was canceled after he declined to perform, citing an inferior sound system. The Dec. 6 rescheduled date for that show was postponed to Jan. 21.
