Taylor Gang leader Wiz Khalifa is going to have Chula Vista, California fans waiting a little longer to see him performing live after having a Saturday (August 23) night concert nixed following a publicized fatal shooting.
According to reports, Wiz’s show has been cancelled as a result of a Friday evening death.
Wiz Khalifa’s concert in Chula Vista, California Saturday night has been cancelled … following a shooting that broke out in the backstage area of his gig the night before. A Ticketmaster employee tells us the show was cancelled this afternoon … but no further details were made available to them at this time — and the venue hasn’t picked up their phone. (TMZ)
Wiz has since stepped forward to issue a statement on the fatal incident.
As we previously reported … a man was shot to death backstage at Khalifa’s concert near San Jose Friday night. One source tells us the man was shot at least 5 times. Cops tell us they believe the shooter and victim had no connection to Wiz … which makes the concert cancellation slightly confusing. Wiz says, “Due to a situation out of our control, tonight’s UTIOM show is cancelled. This was a senseless tragedy. Violence is never the answer. My prayers go out to the victim’s family.” (TMZ)
