Live Nation drops Jeremih from PartyNextDoor tour

By | Published on Tuesday 6 December 2016


R&B type Jeremih has been thrown off rapper PartyNextDoor’s current UK tour, on which he was acting as support act. In a statement, promoter Live Nation said that it had been left with “no choice” after “multiple incidents”.

Those incidents include Jeremih allegedly sending a stand in for a recent performance in Houston, walking off stage after two songs in Chicago and dissing the headliner at show in Dallas. Oh, and the claim that pepper spray had been “put in the atmosphere” during that latter performance.

In a statement to Pitchfork, Live Nation said: “Live Nation’s top priority is helping artists and performers create great shows for their fans. With this in mind, we’ve decided it’s best for the ‘Summer’s Over’ tour to continue without Jeremih, effective immediately. After multiple incidents we are left with no other choice. We do not support these actions or take these actions lightly. Ticketholders may request a full refund at point of purchase, which will forfeit access to the entire show. No partial refunds will be issued”.
