SMH… Ashanti was scheduled to perform at the ‘Back to the Brook’ concert at Stony Brook University (noticed I said “scheduled to perform”). Ashanti was unable to perform because the concert was canceled at the last minute.
So why was the concert canceled? Let me explain… Stony Brook University has a population of 2500 students but the concert sold… **drum roll please**… 24 whopping tickets!
The school issued a statement explaining the reason for the cancellation. In the statement, they made sure to include the number of tickets Ashanti sold (or didn’t sell). Check out the University’s statement below:
Now, Teyana Taylor was originally suppose to headline the show, but she pulled out due to “unforeseen circumstances”. I’m sure if she was the headliner, there would be no issues with ticket sales.
