(AllHipHop News) Earlier this month, the news was revealed that Russ would be performing in Saudi Arabia for the first time, something he’s been working on for three years.

Saudi Gazette reports the show has been canceled by the General Entertainment Authority (GEA).

The official statement issued on Friday reveals the organizer committed a number of violations and did not meet the terms of the license.

This included non-compliance with the requirement of coordinating with the Authority when dealing with promotion campaigns and ticket sales.

The statement also reveals violations were repeated after several warnings.

The show was to take place on July 12 at King Abdullah Economic City in Jeddah, in collaboration with Extraordinary Entertainment.

Allegedly, tickets sold out a few hours after going on sale.

Russ previously stated his largest market is in Saudi Arabia.

Maybe next time.
