We'll give AraabMuzik this much: At least he didn't wait till the fans were already inside the door at Trees to cancel his concert. (Sorry, Young Thug, but not sorry.) In all seriousness, though, word came out this afternoon that the East Coast producer, who was scheduled to headline Trees this coming Thursday, has had cancel his appearance, for as-yet unspecified reasons.
Ticket buyers will receive full refunds for their purchases, although the early indication is that the show will be rescheduled.
The following statement has been released from AraabMuzik via the Trees Facebook page:
TICKET BUYER INFO: If you already purchased your ticket, you will be refunded. We will contact ticket buyers immediately once a new date is determined.
To the rest of you...we apologize for the inconvenience and will update you with the new date and details as soon as possible. Rest assured, we'll see the MVP of the MPC in Dallas very, very soon!
AraabMuzik's upcoming concerts list on his website has also removed his previously scheduled date in Austin, which was supposed to take place the night after his Dallas appearance. His next performance will now take place on Saturday at the Ilesoniq Festival in Montreal.
