Lil Wayne skips concert


(CBS News) Fans of rapper Lil Wayne will be offered their money back after the recording artist refused to pass through a security check into his concert at a South Carolina arena. Lil Wayne then skipped the concert all together. 

A statement Sunday by managers of the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia says Lil Wayne refused to enter the building when security workers sought to apply “the venue’s standard safety procedures.” The arena’s management says it wasn’t willing to make an exception for the headliner of Saturday night’s show “and jeopardize safety.”

The rest of the show went on with other scheduled entertainers 2 Chainz, Tory Lanez and Cardi B.

Ticketholders are being offered refunds starting Monday.
