Columbia, SC – Lil Wayne was a no-show at a Columbia, South Carolina concert over the weekend. Weezy, who was expected to headline to event on Saturday (September 30), refused to go through venue security and promptly left without hitting the stage.
The concert went on without him, and 2 Chainz, Cardi B and Tory Lanez opened the show as planned.
Managers of the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia reportedly said Lil Wayne wouldn’t enter the building when security workers tried to uphold “the venue’s standard safety procedures.” They added that no exception would be made for fear they would “jeopardize safety.”
Neither Wayne nor his camp have spoken publicly about the incident.
The venue initially promised to issue full refunds to those who purchased a ticket beginning Monday (October 2), but has recently retracted that statement.
Some fans took their frustrations out on Twitter, while others speculated on the reasons behind Wayne’s decision to leave.
