Rick Ross Cancels Show This Weekend Over Health

(AllHipHop News) Rick Ross’s health continues to be a concern, as the rap star has canceled an upcoming concert slated for this weekend.

Rick Ross was supposed to take the stage at Georgia State University’s homecoming this Friday (October 21), but was forced to cancel the shows, as he recuperates from the two seizures he had on Friday (October 14).

“We are disappointed he had to cancel, but completely understand that Rick Ross needs to take care of his himself at this time. We hope he is better soon,” concerts director George F. Baker III said in a statement. “It takes 8 -12 weeks of work to negotiate availability, fees and contracts to just schedule a concert. We could never find a new artist in three days and be able to sell tickets and promote it effectively,”

The news of the cancellation comes after Rick Ross was forced to cancel a pair of shows last weekend.

Rick Ross was supposed to perform in Memphis, Tennessee, but was forced to cancel the show after he suffered a seizure on a Delta Airlines flight while leaving Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Shortly after he was released from the hospital in the first incident, the rapper boarded a private jet, but suffered another seizure shortly after takeoff.

The private jet was forced to land in Birmingham, Alabama, where Rick Ross was treated at a local hospital.

He ended up canceling his show in Memphis, Tennessee, as well as another show in Greensboro, North Carolina, for A&T’s homecoming.

Fans who purchased tickets to the GSU show are being offered a full refund at the point of purchase.
