Lil Wayne was set to perform in Columbia, S.C.’s Fall Ball, but fans were left disappointed. He was set to perform with 2 Chainz, Cardi B, and Tory Lanez but he couldn’t pass the security checkpoint. The Colonial Life Arena said in a statement that he “elected not to come into the building through the venue’s standard safety procedures.”
Some venues let stars pass unchecked but the CLA was very strict on security. They said in a statement that “The safety of its patrons, its performers, and its staff members is and continues to be the number one priority for Colonial Life Arena. While we regret the artist’s decision not to perform, Colonial Life Arena is not willing to bypass its security standards and jeopardize the safety of its patrons, performers, or staff members.” The venue will provide refunds starting on October 2nd.
