Singer/Songwriter Keyshia Cole was scheduled to perform at The Greenville Convention Center in North Carolina on Saturday May 4th.
The show was cancelled due to the promoters inability to provide the basic production needs such as sound, lighting, staging and general safety requirements. Cole was extremely disappointed that she could not perform for her fans who patiently waited in line for hours.
“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 under these conditions and by 7pm 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”, says Keyshia Cole.
