Lil Wayne skips concert4 min read
Lil Wayne fans will be provided with refunds after he refused to pass through a security check to enter a South Carolina arena, and missed his concert.
Managers of the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia released a statement Sunday saying Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., refused to enter the building when security workers sought to apply “the venue’s standard safety procedures.” The arena’s management says it wasn’t willing to make an exception for the headliner of Saturday night’s show “and jeopardize safety.”
Chainz and Cardi B Tory Lanez, 2 performed as scheduled.
Lil Wayne spent eight months behind bars in a New York City jail for gun possession after he was found with the weapon on his tour bus as he left a 2007 concert.
