Whether American hip-hop artist Gucci Mane will be performing in Penticton on May 28 is uncertain after the rapper announced he was cancelling his “Live in Canada” tour.
TMZ.com reported on Saturday that the legendary performer was postponing the tour because, “he wants to bring a bigger and better show to his fans than he had in the bag.”
Carla Seddon, director of marketing with South Okanagan Events Centre, said she is waiting for an official confirmation from the promoter.
The tour was originally planned to feature Canadian artists Merkules and Peter Jackson and stop in 10 cities across Canada, kicking off in Halifax on May 15 and stopping in Penticton on May 28.
Merkules announced in a May 8 Facebook post he was pulling out of the tour, due to a lack of organization and professionalism from the tour management in dealing with the contracts and money, he said.
The Live in Canada tour was in support of Gucci Mane’s latest album, Evil Genius.
