“Of course, refunds are available at the point of purchase, and there is a rescheduled show on October 28th if people still want to come, I promise it will be special,” he continued. “Nothing will take away from the effort people went to to get to Vegas though and I’m sorry it wasn’t communicated sooner to the people waiting outside.”

According to the singer, he and his crew “really thought the show was going to happen up until the very last moment but it just couldn’t for safety reasons.”
