DaBaby’s show in New Orleans canceled due to poor ticket sales

Rapper DaBabyThe show, which was to take place in New Orleans, was recently canceled, possibly due to low ticket sales. The rapper has been in several controversies over the past few months since his Rolling Loud Miami festival speech in 2021.

The 30-year-old made homophobic and misogynistic comments but apologized after backlash from fans and business partners online. He had also previously been filmed trying to force an indifferent fan to kiss him.

Although the rapper’s show in New Orleans was declared canceled on the Ticketmaster website, the show’s organizers claimed that it had simply been postponed and that certain adjustments would be made before the new date was announced.

DaBaby’s show at Smoothie King Arena in New Orleans has reportedly been canceled. The concert was scheduled for Friday, September 2; however, on Tuesday it was announced that he would no longer be performing due to the low amount recorded in ticket sales for the event.

The news was revealed on Tuesday when the concert’s Ticketmaster listing was deactivated. The site read: “Unfortunately, the event organizer had to cancel your event.” The page also revealed that refunds for fans who purchased the tickets would be distributed through the channel they were paid for within 30 days.

Before the recent development, Nola.com revealed that the show recorded less than 500 tickets purchased for the 14,000-seat venue. The ticket would have cost $35 for each spectator.

Although Ticketmaster said the show was cancelled, concert organizers claimed it was simply moved. They revealed they were working on a new date, most likely a new venue, and a roster of star performers that could still include DaBaby.

Euell Sylvester, also known as 7th Ward Shorty and Greg Pulver, spoke about the gig, revealing the Friday performance was moved for “a number of business reasons”. Pulver added, “We decided to postpone, and it was in our best interests.”

Regarding the low number of ticket purchases shown on the Ticketmaster site, the representative of DaBaby’s booking agency, Major Artist Concerts (MAC), claimed that the site was incorrect in the number presented.

MAC CEO Andrew Lieber disputed the assumption that low ticket sales were causing the show to be canceled and said more tickets were sold than the venues were showing.

Lieber also claimed (per nola) that it was their decision to withdraw from the event. He claimed that the show’s promoters would not have been able to meet the terms of the contract. Lieber released a statement email which read, “DaBaby’s show in New Orleans has been pulled by the artist’s team due to the promoter’s breach of contract. DaBaby will be back in New Orleans very soon to catch up with his fans.

Pulver spoke out about the breach of contract accusations made by Lieber and revealed that the information produced was false. His released statement read, “We sincerely apologize for having to postpone the stop of the ‘For The Culture’ tour in New Orleans with DaBaby which was scheduled to take place on September 2. The public information released is false and we do not have authorized anyone to announce the cancellation of this event.

He added that plans with Smoothie King Center and the artists’ management had been postponed due to “unforeseen circumstances”. Pulver continued, “We are in the process of working with all parties involved to announce future dates and times.”

As early as 2018, DaBaby was embroiled in several controversies, one of which was his year-end misogynistic and homophobic statements at the Rolling Loud Miami festival.

The infamous rapper shouted to a crowd of fans, “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or one of those deadly sexually transmitted diseases that will kill you in two to three weeks, then turn on your cell phone. Guys, if you’re not sucking in the parking lot, turn on your cell phone.

Although the rapper initially stood by his statement, DaBaby apologized for his Remarks. He also said he has no problem with the LGBTQIA+ community and claimed their business is theirs.

DaBaby’s other controversial moments include the time the rapper was seen trying to force a fan to kiss him in a video that surfaced in April. He was also charged with assault and battery by a property manager who claimed the 30-something harassed him.
