JAY-Z‘s ‘4:44 Tour’ may be his most profitable trek yet, but it isn’t averse to bumps along the case.
Such is the case today; for the rapper has had to axe two shows due to production difficulties.
Full story below…
In a statement issued by Jigga, he explained the situation:
“Due to the scale of this production, we cannot get the screens up on time into the building in Nebraska. This tour is too important to me to do it halfway. I have to cancel the show. I respect you guys too much to take the money and run. Peace, Hov.”
He’s also deleted the Fresno show from the literary for the same reason.
Given earlier suggestion of slow ticket sales, this will no doubt give his detractors ammunition of sorts. Especially given that it looks like the shows are outright cancelled rather than postponed.
Still, numbers don’t lie; the tour is performing well and is on-track to become his highest grossing yet. As such, the only loss here is for the fans missing out on seeing the Hip-Hop idol.
