Ibiza DC still doesn't know why Gucci Mane canceled

Ibiza DC, the club where Gucci Mane was scheduled to perform Sept 15, still doesn't know why the Atlanta rapper canceled at the last minute.

Gucci Mane was slated to perform as part of the promotional tour for his newest album, "The Appeal." But at 5:30 p.m, the rapper's label,  Warner Bros., abruptly called to cancel, Ibiza manager Misha Kapourchali says.

Two hours before doors opened? Memo to future bookers: That's known as #guccitime.

Within an hour of the call, Kapourchali says the venue sent out thousands of e-mails and text alerts with news of the cancellation. Tickets were not pre-sold, and the venue stayed closed that night.

He says they are working with the label to schedule return date. 

Ibiza was Mane's only stop in the metropolitan area on his tour. He is scheduled to play New York Sept 27, but a venue has not been announced, according to his MySpace.

We don't know why this post is even relevent...

he may of found out that DC has no appetite for talentless artists and didn't want to get booed like he did in Philly

It's relevant because it was recommended as the Get Out item on Wednesday.

i also feel puzzled

Gucci just canceled his show in Memphis, TN scheduled for Thursday Sept. 23rd. I hate unreliable artists.

So the suggestion was the we "get out" and go to DC to see a show that ended up being cancelled last minute. Excellent suggestion.
