Morgan Wallen took to social media yesterday, May 4, to break his silence and provide a health status update, as well as offer additional apologies to his fans in Mississippi regarding the sudden cancellation of his concert on April 23.
Just a few hours before his Thursday evening performance, the country music sensation posted a video on his Instagram stories to confirm that he will indeed be performing in Jacksonville after being directed by his doctor to rest his vocal cords. This was the first concert Wallen has had ever sine controversy broke out due to the sudden cancellation of his Oxford, Mississippi show.
In the video, Wallen addressed the issue that had taken place in Oxford, and gave fans a brief health update.
“I wouldn’t say I’m 100%, but I’m doing a lot better and to everyone in Oxford, I just wanted to reiterate how sorry I am for the way that went down,” Wallen said. ”I thought I was going to be good to go and I just wasn’t. So we are working on a rescheduled date. We are close to a rescheduled date, I just don’t have the exact one yet. So as soon as I do I’ll let you know.”
Wallens statement comes shortly after an Oxford concert-goer announced that she will be taking legal actions against Wallen and his team for the concert cancellation due to breach of contract and negligence.
In the lawsuit, the issuer pointed out that the potential refunds of the cancelled concert don’t take into account “out of pocket expenses,” that customers bought, such as food, lodging, transportation and other fees.
The Jacksonville show will be followed by shows at iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, FL tonight, May 5 and MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa, FL on May 6.
