Jay Z has canceled his performance in Nebraska. The rapper has decided to scrap a concert, which was part of his ‘4:44’ tour, that was scheduled to take place on December 6 at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln.
The reason involves technical difficulties. Jay-Z will not go ahead with the show with these glitches because he wants his set to be perfect.
While he was speaking in a statement about the gig, which has been obtained by Omaha World-Herald, he said that ‘This tour is too important to me to do it halfway. I have to cancel the show.’
Jay-Z also doesn’t want to be seen as taking his fans’ money ‘and run,’ because he respects his loyal supporters ‘too much.’
‘I respect you guys too much to take the money and run,’ Jay-Z confessed.
The technological issue is believed to be the production teams difficulty in setting up large screens for clips of the tour to be projected on.
Ticketmaster has also confirmed the canceled date, where a guest performance by Vic Mensa was also set to take place. The site reads ‘This event has been canceled.’
The customers will receive a full refund, and orders placed online or over the phone will ‘automatically’ be void and refunded.
Ticketmaster also added that ‘Refunds at Point of Purchase only. Internet & Phone orders will automatically be canceled & refunded. ‘ Jay Z will continue to take to the stage in various sites across California, Washington, and Oregon before his tour comes to an end on December 21.
