Wayne was the headliner for the second annual Fall Ball at the Colonial Life Arena. The event featured performances from Cardi B and 2 Chainz who took the stage as planned.

The arena released a statement on the matter saying that Wayne "elected not to come into the building through the venue's standard safety procedures."

"The safety of its patrons, its performers, and its staff members is and continues to be the number one priority for Colonial Life Arena," it continued. "While we regret the artist's decision not to perform, Colonial Life Arena is not willing to bypass its security standards and jeopardize the safety of its patrons, performers, or staff members."

While Colonial Life promised concert goers a refund staring Monday, concert promoters are denying refunds," The Post and Courier reported. Promoters listed on concert announcements included Columbia based Victory Promotions and Ben Hated LLC.

Wayne last made headlines in September when he was hospitalized after suffering from multiple seizures. The incident led to fellow rapper T.I. replacing him at a Las Vegas gig.
