Lil Wayne was scheduled to perform at the annual Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas on Saturday (Sept. 21), but was a last minute scratch leaving fans upset.
The seventh iteration of the Sin City festival is going down this weekend with a lineup that includes Post Malone, Chance The Rapper, Sheck Wes, Gunna and more. On Saturday night, Weezy was slated to close things out but never hit the stage. According to witnesses, the no-show came to a surprise because the rapper’s DJ was onstage and even started to set things off by introing Wayne with some soundbites.
However, about 10 minutes later, the venue announced Weezy would not be hitting the stage. “Unfortunately, Lil Wayne will not be able to perform tonight. Sorry for any inconvenience,” the announcement read.
I hope Lil Wayne is okay. He been pulling out of a lot of show dates and he just cancelled on us at Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas. 😕 pic.twitter.com/yePjeYgWol

This is the fourth show Wayne has missed while on his recent tour run, with the most recent coming last week when canceled a show on the Blink-182 Tour after having issues at the hotel he was staying at.
Needless to say, fans who paid good money to see Weezy perform are angry.
“Lil Wayne fucking no showed Life is Beautiful and we didn’t even find out till 20 minutes after his set was supposed to start,” one person posted on Twitter.
“@LilTunechi thanks for cancelling on life is beautiful. Literally bought my ticket to see you, you fucking asshat. Maybe don’t go on tour if you can’t be sober enough to actually perform,” another person added.
Others were concerned for the rapper. “@LilTunechi send us a message if you’re ok, someone else added.
Wayne has yet to comment on the show not going down.
