Morgan Wallen Offers Up Second Apology After Backlash for No-Show Concert
Morgan Wallen issued another apology for having to cancel his show in Mississippi at the last minute after losing his voice.
The singer made an Instagram Story from Jacksonville, Florida, where he's performing for the first time since the incident.
"What's up, everybody? I just wanted to let you know I am in Jacksonville, we are going to play a show tonight and all weekend. I wouldn't say I'm 100% but I'm doing a lot better," he said in the video.
Wallen then clarified the Vaught-Hemingway Stadium situation, explaining why he made the call to not perform on April 23, after his openers HARDY and Earnest had already played their sets.
"And to everyone in Oxford, I just wanted to reiterate how sorry I am for the way that went down. I thought I was going to be good to go and I just wasn't," he explained. "We're working on a rescheduled date. We are close to having a rescheduled date, I just don't know the exact one yet. So as soon as I do, I'll let you know."
This is Wallen's second apology. He initially apologized right after his set was canceled, issuing a statement on his Instagram Stories.
"After last night's show I started losing my voice so I spent the day resting up, talking to my doctor and working through my vocal exercises trying to get better. I really thought I'd be able to take the stage and it kills me to deliver this so close to stage time, but my voice is shot and I'm unable to sing," he wrote.
Though Wallen explained in that Instagram Story what happened, many fans were still very upset over missing out on his performance. One fan filed a class action suit, noting in court documents that though the venue promised a refund, it had yet to be issued.
