It’s hard to have a concert when the headliner won’t come into the auditorium. That’s reportedly what happened July 23 at the Jamey Johnson show in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Jamey and his team wouldn’t cooperate with the staff at the House of Blues concert venue, according to a post on the venue’s Facebook page.
House Of Blues issued the following statement
“As always, the safety and security of our guests is our number one priority.
Tonight’s artist refused to adhere to our safety and security guidelines and would not enter the building. Unfortunately, tonight’s show is cancelled.
We regret any inconvenience to our guests. Refunds will be available at point of purchase tomorrow. Our box office will be open at 12PM for any purchases made at the venue.”
It reads, “Tonight’s artist refused to adhere to our safety and security guidelines and would not enter the building. Unfortunately, tonight’s show is cancelled.”
According to a report from local TV station WMBF, one fan at the show claimed Jamey’s crew refused to go through security screenings before entering the venue.
The company that owns House of Blues, Live Nation, has stepped up its security screenings in the wake of the bombing that killed 22 people following an Ariana Grande concert last May in England. That means absolutely no weapons are allowed inside.
Fans have been offered a full refund, but a few concertgoers remain unhappy with the way it went down.
