Lil Wayne canceled his latest concert in Minneapolis after some of his crew members refused to be searched by the club's security on June 21.

In a statement posted on the club's Facebook page, it's explained that the rapper, who was supposed to perform at The Venue club over the weekend, "elected not to perform after members of his entourage refused to take part in the Venue's standard safety procedures.''

"These safety procedures apply to customers and entertainers alike and are similar, if not identical, to safety standards and procedures utilized by clubs and arenas throughout the United States and the Twin Cities.

"The safety of its patrons, its performers, and its staff members is and continues to be the number one priority for The Venue. While The Venue regrets the artist's decision not to perform, The Venue is not willing to bypass its security standards and jeopardize the safety of its patrons, performers, or staff members," the statement added.


The club confirmed that Weezy was permitted entry into the club upon his arrival. However, he chose to cancel his performance at the last minute after finding out some of his people had trouble entering the venue.
The club is now in the process of refunding fans' tickets. But Wayne is yet to issue a statement as regards the incident.
