Keyshia Cole recently couldn't perform at her concert in Greenville, N.C., as the lighting and sound were not working.
She received backlash on Twitter for canceling the show, but released a statement explaining the situation, telling her fans it was not her fault.
“To the City Of Greenville and all my fans, I sincerely want to apologize for the cancellation of my concert Saturday night. I was ready to give you all a great show. Upon my arrival to the venue, not only was the stage not secure but the sound system was not connected. The promoter, Lorenzo Ferguson of Next Level Ent., did not have adequate lighting, microphones, and other key equipment essentials that he was to provide.
My staff as well as The Greenville Convention staff worked tirelessly to try and rectify the situation. Ultimately, it was clear that I was not going to be able to perform with no sound and lights and by 7 p.m. still nothing was working!! I have done a show with Mr. Ferguson in the past so he absolutely knows what was needed. I always want to give my fans the absolute best Keyshia Cole show possible. I am truly disappointed and deeply saddened at the turn of events."
On top of that, the promoter did not show up to give fans their refunds on Monday. Ferguson told them to arrive at the venue after 1:00 p.m. with their tickets so they could get their money back, but did not arrive.
