Australia is NOT having good luck with their music festivals lately!
On Saturday, Flo Rida was scheduled to perform at the Fat As Butter festival AND at a club show at Mounties in Sydney, but he reportedly wouldn't leave his hotel room and wasn't in "a suitable condition" to go on stage for either event.
Here's what Flo Rida's team tweeted about it on the rapper's behalf:
"Australian fans, I was looking forward to performing for you but due to unforeseen circumstances I wasn’t able to do so last night.”
Here's an excerpt from a statement released today by the Fat As Butter festival:
"We are extremely disappointed that Flo Rida decided not to fulfill his commitment to appear at the Fat As Butter festival on Saturday, but we are more disappointed that he let his fans down. We worked overtime to secure his performance, in the months leading up to the festival as well as on the day of the festival itself. Fat As Butter was one of the first shows locked in for his Australian tour and was set to be the largest in terms of audience attendance."
More from Sydney club Mounties:
“…Every time we got our hopes up that he was in transit to the venue, we would find out that he had not in fact left his hotel room. The most difficult part was then turning him away from the Club when he finally arrived nearly three hours after he was due on stage. We did not believe he was in a suitable condition to perform."
We understand things happen beyond our control, but it looks like Flo Rida really let down a lot of people! Hopefully he had a VERY good reason.
Do U think Flo Rida had a legit excuse for missing two shows on Saturday?
