COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The promotional group behind the 2nd annual Fall Ball has said refunds will not be given after rapper Lil Wayne did not perform as advertised.
The rapper showed up to Colonial Life Arena for the concert but didn't perform or even enter the building.
Ben Hated, LLC and Victory Promotions said in a letter to Colonial Life Arena that after careful consideration and consulting with their attorneys, they made the collective decision to not offer refunds.
"All of our flyers and promotions has never once mentioned Lil Wayne as the headliner nor mentioned this as a Lil Wayne concert," the letter read.
CLA officials released a statement Sunday evening in response to the letter they received from the promotional groups. In the statement, officials say that although they do not agree with the decision to not refund patrons, they are still in discussions with the promotion groups and say they will not reach a final resolution by 10 a.m. Monday morning. Earlier in the day on Sunday, CLA had promised to begin giving refunds by that time.
