Lil Wayne Sued Over Cancelled New York Shows

Date: February 2009

What happened? After three cancellations of Rochester, New York concerts by Wayne, RMF Productions filed a $1.3 million lawsuit against him. Edward Strickland, the General Manager of RMF, claimed to have wired $100,000 in advance of the first show, only to have the show rescheduled three times by Wayne. When Wayne cancelled for the third time in order to accommodate his schedule for the I Am Music Tour, it prompted Strickland and RMF to take the issue to court.

Complex says: We get that keeping your national, sold-out tour on schedule is probably more important than a random appearance in Rochester, NY. However, as fans, we don’t think taking payment and rescheduling three times is a good look.
