Kid Cudi Trashes Stage in Australia After Performance Cut Short
Rapper Kid Cudi trashed an Australian concert stage after his performance at The Heatwave Music Festival was cut short, according to reports.
Cudi became frustrated when he was unable to perform his hit songs “Pursuit Of Happiness,” “Day n Night,” “Memories” and others.
According to ToneDeaf.com.au, the rapper knocked over lights and speakers on stage before exiting to the crowds dismay.
Despite Cudi’s outrage, many concert goers would agree that the tantrum was warranted as the Heatwave Festival in Melbourne, Australia received thousands of complaints online about number of issues ranging from the festival not having ATMs, to the venue not carrying alcohol.
Complaints from attendees also included general admission ticket holders being granted access into the VIP areas, the premium front-row seats having no view of the stage due to the location of the speaker stacks, and artists failing to show up to meet and greets.
The Cleveland bred rapper’s set was further complicated when his guitarists were allegedly told by security they couldn’t come on stage despite having full artist credentials.
Cudi’s set wasn’t the only one that was cut short, as Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne’s set was cut from 90 minutes to 50 minutes, since the festival started 3 hours late from its scheduled 2:30 start time.
Refunds are currently being issued to those who paid for the meet and greet according to Ticketek.
Kid Cudi has not Tweeted nor was he available for comment at the time of print.
