Investors Sue Promoters Of Lil Wayne Concert Canceled Three Times

A group of investors are turning to legal action in hopes of having their money returned after a concert that was supposed to feature Lil Wayne was canceled three different times.

Investors filed a lawsuit against RMF Productions, Edward Strickland and Andre Langston, seeking at least $180,000 to bring the rapper to Rochester, New York.

According to RMF Productions, Lil Wayne was advanced $100,000 dollars to perform at the Blue Cross Arena in October of 2008, but canceled the show, blaming an inferior sound system.

The rapper, who was promoting his release Tha Carter III, rescheduled the Rochester show for December 6th, 2008, but canceled that date to rehearse for his “I Am Music Tour.”

The second concert was rescheduled for January 21, but that concert was scrapped and no make up date was offered to fans in Rochester.

While Lil Wayne is not named in the most recent lawsuit, he may have to show up in court over the three canceled shows.

In February of 2009, RMF Productions filed a $1.3 million dollar lawsuit against Lil Wayne and his manager Cortez Bryant for cancelling all three dates
