Fans disappointed by Lil Wayne no-show

READ MORE: Fans disappointed by Lil Wayne no-show

WILMINGTON -- New Hanover High School's Brogden Hall was supposed to be filled with the sounds of rap artist Lil Wayne performing Sunday night. Instead, it was filled with the cries of angry fans.

Fans waited for Lil Wayne to take the stage, but the performer was a no-show, leaving fans demanding answers.

Lil Wayne fan Ashley Perrymon said, "I said, mommy, I ain't worried about nothing. I already bought my ticket and everything. I made sure I was coming."

And so were cops.

New Hanover County Sheriff Sid Causey said, "We don't think we have too many, and if we do, I'd rather have too many than not enough."

The Sheriff's Department said they expected a full house Sunday night. They made arrangements to keep watch over more than 4,000 people. But by nine o'clock only a fraction of that filled Brogden Hall.

Lil Wayne never showed up. And fans didn't take it lightly.

NewsChannel 3 heard unconfirmed reports that Lil Wayne didn't perform because he wasn't happy with the turnout and that the concert had not generated enough money.

No word yet if concert-goers will receive a refund.

you cant make this stuff up.

"Refunds will be given by the person or business that sold you the ticket". HA,HA,HA,HA etc....That money was spent months ago on baby diapers, crack and rent money. No refund's here. But don't be mad all you hater's, you got conned by a pro hustler(self proclaimed) and there will by another hood rat role model that will come thru the area in about 2 months to do the same thing. You will get a second chance. Maybe Lil-Moron will write a song about you and your stupid belief that he cared about you....... Down in Willmywood they could not catch a break, I took them for all their money and I even ate some cake, I'm never goin back cuz I know that they be hatein, just think abou all those smart people on WWAY instigatin........ Not bad for my first try. Sucka's, all of you and the funniest part is that you defended him until the end. Up untill the concert you said it was a racial thing, us whiteys and grown-ups just couldnt understand it. Now you want a refund? So it is all about the money. Sorry your lesson of how life works had to be taught by a gangsta but that's life. Sometimes you get robbed from behind and sometimes it's your brother. Ha!

IT WASN'T THE RAPPER HIMSELF

IT WASN'T THE RAPPER HIMSELF BUT THE FAKE PEOPLE THAT TOLD ALL HIS FANS THAT HE WAS COMING TO TOWN STAN BALLARD A.K.A STAN THE MAN WHO WAS IN CHARGED OF PROMOTING THE CONCERT HE KNEW THAT HE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY BECAUSE HE HAS BACKED UP CHILD SUPPORT THAT HE CAN NOT PAY!!!

WELL I AM STAN BALLARDS

WELL I AM STAN BALLARDS DAUGHTER MY SELF AND YOU CAN LEAVE THE FILE COMMENTS ABOUT CHILD SUPPORT TO YOUR SELF CAUSE IF YOU AINT TAKING CARE OF 29 KIDS THEN U CAN KISS IT = ]

Lawsuits rolling in...

So the concert promoter stated he would consider filing another lawsuit if the concert did not sell out. How much taxpayer money was wasted on law enforcement for a concert that never happened. I think our city attorney needs to get off his butt and counter the lawsuit and sue the promoter for the cost to the city and county. Poor little thugmaster wayne.. didn't want to play becuase nobody wiked him enough to come out to his party.... Gimme a break ! Also, the laws need to be changed so that officials can decide who and who does not get to play nicely at Brogden Hall.... Lil Wayne.. A waste of human life...

zzzz

This thugs 15 minuets are long gone.

ha

15 minutes look who so foolish

LOL

The title should read, "Fans disappointed by Little WayneR no-show". What a little thug. I hope these young kids see the type of JERK this little excuse for a performer is. No lost sleep here, I SURE HOPE that the school board holds THEM to the contract and makes them pay for holding the venue open. Again...no loss to Wilmington whatsoever. Hope he doesn't let the door hit him in is over-sized britches on his way out of town. DO US A FAVOR WAYNER...DON'T COME BACK...dats how we roll!

GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!!

ok as someone who was actually there and behind the scenes I can say LIL WAYNE WAS AT NEW HANOVER! I don't blame him for not performing. Those of you who dont know why he didnt perform should be quiet. He was promised a certain amount of money, but the good ol boys in Wilmington (the WPD & government) decided to use those funds for "added security" which was extremely unnecessary. They thought that by selling tickets at the door (which was not previously planned) they would make up for the "re-allocated" money and still have enough to pay the said amount. When this didnt happen and he didnt get his money he chose not to perform. He's a rapper!! Thats his JOB! how many of you all would do your job for less than what your promised salary was??? I damn sure wouldnt. And if you were at the concert, you know that everyone was told where to take their ticket stubs to get their refund back. Most of you that are on here talkin about "oh ha ha hes such a gangsta and didnt want to perform for yall" are once again looking to the media (who never gets it right) for all your information, and look real foolish. As for the comment about the "white girls in skirts and polo shirts", they may have been making "a scene" outside where there were nearly 100 officers and a damn helicopter (for about 200 high school kids??), but they were quiet and on the sidelines inside the show. Not that that has anything to do with this issue and the media making the wrong reports (because yes LIL WAYNE WAS THERE), but please please please KNOW your facts before you make comments, and don't think because you saw it on the news that you know what you're talking about, because when one fool spreads a word, everyone who repeats it looks even dumber!

Actually There

Did you get ripped off too? LOL The news said he was there..so w/e, he was sitting in his bus while all his fans waited for him and he did not care. NOT enough $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, hes a GD millionaire maybe one concert for the fans would have shown if he had one decent bone in his tattooed body.

kNOWING YOUR FACTS!!!!!

AMEN!!!! FINALLY SOMEBODY TELLIN THE TRUTH!!!!

LITTLE WAYNE

Response to Actually there. Who actually cares?

Something

SMELLS with your statement, like YOU don't know what YOU are talking about.

Maybe you should get your facts straight

The money that was paid for LEO didn't come from money gained from selling tickets. The contract was that the promoters would pay for 10 Deputies. Your rapper didn't make money b/c nobody wanted to come out and watch him. $40 a ticket is ridiculous. Your rapper was there, but he is such a pathetic excuse for a human he wouldn't even come out to face the few who were there to see him. You say everyone could get their money back, but what happened to those that bought tickets there? They didn't get their money back when they went outside. This guy is a sorry excuse. He had a job to go out and do...and he didn't do his job. People got there before around 3:00 so they could be the first ones in. They stayed at the front the entire time and waited for this thug. The police probably had a lot to do with the number of people that weren't there. But not because they were harrassing anyone as some have said. It's because these other thugs knew they couldn't get in with their weapons and drugs. Lil Wayne was performing on a school campus, and his little body guard thugs had no business bringing weapons onto school grounds. Having a concealed weapon doesn't give them the right to carry it at the school. Let LEO take care of that, which it appears they did just fine.

Get ya money back yo!

I say someone is owed some money y'all. And all you old david dukes who wanted this concert stopped will have to pay. Lil Wayne came here to do a show. He got costs to pay out and he could have been doing some show someplace elase. Stan and Mitch had there game on but the sheriff and his boys didnt give the men a chance. Yo, tell me what white guy who has a concert has hundreds of police buggin the people outside? Man the streets were blocked and parents had tolet their kids off 2 blocks away. That aint right, but it is white now aint it? Mighty white! ATM !!!

I get soooo tired of someone

I get soooo tired of someone black( if the shoe fits, if not then this doesn't apply to you!) throwing out racial comments ( evil whites, david dukeie's etc.)everytime something doesn't go their way. There is a lot of racism out there, but whites no longer corner the market on it, plenty of black people are haters also. We ALL need to learn to accept and care about each other. After all, our souls have no race and we will ALL stand before God and answer for our sins, and he isn't going to care about any excuses! If your white and hate blacks or black and hate whites, just stop and start treating people how you want to be treated. All this hate, whats the point? God Bless you all!

REPARATIONS!!!

This is my favorite comment since um, well, ever...all us david dukes are going to have to pay little bobby because cheezy weezy stood them up! If this had happened during that NAACP fiasco it would have been even more funny. Typical of this situation. Blame everyone but those involved directly...aka the entertainer and his boyzzzz. Everyone did what they were supposed to do for this show, except for lil weiner. Hey, I've got an idea, let's pull the race card on this one! That'll make us look legit! Hahahaha...morons once again. Oh, if you all haven't seen the video on here that went with this mornings newscast about this mess...please look at it. That sums up EVERYTHING. um, holler?

No show due to police terror tactics

THE MAN BLOCKED THE SHOW My God how can a man make money if the police have to block people from coming in and enjoying the show? This show was blocked from day one. White folk don't want black kids having fun. They sure don't want any money being made by black businessmen. They prevented Lil Wayne's armed bodyguards from entering the building so Weezy wouldn't go on. These men had permits for the weapons. they are ex-cops working security for one of the most popular rap artists in the world. Lil Wayne was basically run out of town by the gestapo. the sad thing is he had things to say to the people of Wilmington about the violence. But he was blocked with strong armed threats of violence by the redneck sheriff.

Permits?

So by your rationale then a properly trained teacher or staff member with a valid concealed carry permit should be allowed to carry a concealed pistol while on school grounds? And by your account if all of the extra law enforcement was unnecessary since everyone will play nicely together, why does Lil' Whiner or whatever his name need his own armed guards? If they didn't feel safe without their personal security then Causey and the NHC School Board weren't overreacting to the potential for violence. Get your contradictions straight.

LOL

"This show was blocked from day one. White folk don't want black kids having fun. They sure don't want any money being made by black businessmen." Are YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND. You think gang bangin and what Lil Wayne stands for is "fun". Well, don't be surprised when you end up in prison. He made his money, LOL...YOURS and he be keepin it.

Permit

They don"t have a permit to carry a weapon on school grounds.

Kausey's Kids

It seems to me the Kausey's Kids that were out in force played a big part in the reason that this hoodlum didn't do the concert. That is one thing about Sid and his Kid's that i feel good about from all the rest of the dissapointment of late. Most likely this was the best thing for the kids that were planning on going to the concert. Not a chance for it to get out of hand. Great. And just think of all the drinking and drug money that was funneled off the streets for a few days by kids that went and bought these tickets. And I don't feel a thing for the couple of scalpers that were trying to make a buck!

RUN AND GET YOUR MONEY

RUN AND GET YOUR MONEY BACK LITTLE DUFFLE BAG BOYS. I THINK THIS IS SO FUNNY. STAN DA MAN HAS GOT YOUR MONEY ONCE AGAIN .

Lil Wayne LMAOOOOOO

Well, well. Not enough fans for him to play for? Not enough CASH for him. Reports said he was on the bus at the hall. Thats one low life to leave all the kids standing there. Maybe now you all will see just what kind of human this loser is, no values, no concern for you. He is most certainly little, very small person.

Lil Wayne

I knew he would NOT show up! this is why I told my three teenage Daughters that We were NOT going to go.. Any person that has charges as he does has common sense NOT to show up to be caught and sent back to the state and county they are charged and wanted in... The word on the streets out here in the long leaf park area is, He has been seen and spotted out in the area near the boys and girls club with another well known person. How true it is I cant say as it was and is hear say and I did NOT see him for myself.

WAYNE

ok, well I saw 50 Cent playing skee ball at Wilsons last week, that's gangsta!

Maybe he over slept and

Maybe he over slept and missed the bus...or couldn't find Wilmington???? There will be businesses shutting down today due to this event, I just know it!!!

Where was NO Show Lil Wayne ??

Over here in Long Leaf Park partying according too "rumor" on the street, also hanging out at the Boys Club on Rutledge drive..

NO Lil Wayne Hahahaaaaa

Yeah, this guy is soooo great huh? He did not care about all you fans at all, he left because there were not enough of you to bother with. He was not even man enough to preform for you few hundred fans. Hey y'all he is in this for the $$$$$$$$ remember that is what he c-raps about. Tisk tisk. His TRUE colors are shining through. All I can say is Wilmington has spoken and we won. He thinks he can sue the city now, what a joke. He need to realize that the people with the power (most of the law abiding general public) do not approve of his lifestyle and do not want him in this town with his c-rap music.

He didn't try to sue; it was

He didn't try to sue; it was the concert promoter.

HAHA lil' wayne...

This is the funniest story I've seen in a long while. After all these little wannabe ganstas were defending their hero, he didn't even show up! Hey...it's cool. He's just keeping it real. (and keeping your money)... My favorite part was on the channel 3 news this morning...the line to get in was a lot of mid-teenage black guys, but the ones jumping around after the show was cancelled throwing up their hands and cursing were a couple of blonde headed white girls in skirts and polo shirts. They are the real gangstas here!
