New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on July 18, 2023) follows:
Lil Durk, one of the most influential rappers of his generation, has been making waves with his latest album, Almost Healed, which dropped on May 26.
The album features collaborations with J. Cole, Gunna, Morgan Wallen and more, and showcases Durk’s versatility, vulnerability and vision as an artist.
To celebrate the release of his eighth studio album, Lil Durk embarked on a 27-city tour across the US and Canada, dubbed the ‘Sorry for the Drought’ 2023 tour.
Lil Durk ‘Sorry for the Drought’ tour cancelation email
Fans have started receiving the cancelation email from Live Nation or Ticketmaster notifying them of the changes.
The cancelation of concerts or events that fans eagerly anticipated is crushing, but when it involves a mega star like Lil Durk, it becomes an even more significant blow.
Fans have been eagerly looking forward to witnessing Lil Durk’s performances and experiencing the energy and connection that comes with live shows.
Speculation about the reasons behind the tour cancelations points to recent health issues that Lil Durk has been grappling with.
According to reports from TMZ, Lil Durk fell ill during his time in Ohio and sought medical attention at a local hospital. He was subsequently admitted for severe dehydration and exhaustion.
Per TMZ, Lil Durk has been hospitalized for a week for dehydration and exhaustion. “My fans mean everything to me, you’re the reason why I do this, I’ve become severely dehydrated and advised by my doctors not to travel due to exhaustion. Once I get my full energy back, it’s back to business which I’m looking forward to.”
This is not the first time a tour cancelation has impacted the rap community. Just recently, Lil Baby’s tour faced a similar situation, resulting in the cancelation of some shows.
However, new dates for Lil Baby’s tour were shared with fans, offering them some consolation and hope that they would eventually get to see the artist perform live.
How to get refund?
As of now, Ticketmaster has not released an official statement or provided detailed information regarding refunds for Lil Durk’s canceled tour dates.
But going by what happened recently when Lil Baby’s shows were canceled, no action should be required for a refund.
In the case of canceled shows, refunds are typically processed automatically to the original method of payment used at the time of purchase. This process usually takes around 30 days to complete.
Additionally, some event organizers may offer a credit option instead of a refund. This alternative would be visible within the Event Details of the order, accessible through the fan’s Ticketmaster account.
While the cancelation of the ‘Sorry For The Drought’ tour may bring disappointment to fans, it is essential to prioritize Lil Durk’s health and well-being.
With patience and understanding, fans can continue to show their love and support for Lil Durk during this time.
