According to Bossip, the present was canceled after promoting solely 24 tickets. The college launched a press release concerning the cancellation, writing:
“As a company, we do our greatest to host packages for college kids whereas offering range and inclusion. However, now we have struggled to execute sure elements. With solely per week earlier than the live performance, solely 24 tickets had been bought to college students.”
