Morgan Wallen fans had already entered Vaught Hemingway Stadium on Sunday night (April 23) when they were unexpectedly informed that the country singer would not be able to perform. Video boards inside the Ole Miss football stadium displayed a message informing attendees that Wallen had lost his voice and would be unable to play his show.
“Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Morgan has lost his voice and is unable to perform tonight. Therefore, tonight’s show has been canceled. Please make your way safely to the stadium exits. Refunds for tonight’s event will be available at point of purchase.” The news came after a number of fans had already entered the stadium, including a number who posted pictures in which they eagerly awaited Wallen taking the stage.
“Ladies & Gentlemen, Unfortunately Morgan has lost his voice and is unable to perform tonight – therefore tonight’s show has been cancelled. Please make your way safely to the stadium exits. Refunds for tonight’s event will be available at point of purchase,” stated a post on a massive stage screen.
HARDY, ERNEST and Nate Smith performed their supporting sets as scheduled before Wallen’s cancellation announcement.
His next scheduled tour date is at Grand Rapids, Michigan’s Van Andel Arena, on April 27.
Wallen’s currently achieving unparalleled success with his March 2023-released album “One Thing At A Time.”
Its 36 tracks earned nearly 500 million on-demand streams as all 36 tracks entered the Billboard Hot 100 in the wee of the record’s release. That success broke the record set by Drake for most songs by an artist on the chart at one time and the record for most debuts on the chart, with 27.
“Folks, if you spent hard-earned money to attend the Morgan Wallen concert tonight, do not accept a refund that requires a signed release,” the post stated. “The sudden cancellation raises red flags and should be investigated. A refund of the ticket price is insufficient to compensate us for our actual out-of-pocket expense. Like everyone affected, I want answers and will not rest until I get them. More information from our legal team investigating this matter will be forthcoming.”
Philley is a part of the Ridgeland firm of Kilpatrick and Philley. Efforts to reach him Monday morning were not immediately successful.
“Morgan Wallen not being able to sing seems like a ridiculous excuse to cancel his show considering that never stopped him before,” another Twitter fan mused.
Thousands of other comments suggest many other reasons Wallen did not perform on Sunday.
Russ Latino of the Magnolia Tribune tweeted, “Field seats for Morgan Wallen: $800 Hotel Room: $500 Full Tank of Gas: $80 Souvenir T-Shirts: $80 Sitting in Vaught Hemingway since 5 PM only to have Wallen cancel because Oxford did indeed win the party last night: Priceless.”
Yet another Twitter fan said, “Dang, Morgan Wallen just lost the party.”
Controversies are nothing new for Wallen, who is currently the top-drawing country music star in the world.
He was caught on camera in 2021 outside a home in Nashville, Tennessee, yelling profanities and a racial slur. He apologized at the time but was suspended indefinitely from his label and his music was pulled by radio stations and streaming services.
“I spent (Sunday) 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 showtime but my voice is shot and I am unable to sing.”
Philadelphia, Mississippi, native Hardy was one of the opening acts for Wallen.
