Video: Lupe Fiasco ends performance @ Bucknell early due to Bad Sound Set-Up


Last night Lupe performed at Bucknell University but he cut his set short due to the messy sound set-up. Afterwards he went to twitter to explain and apologize:

Bad sound = bad show. Truly apologize Bucknell for not be able to continue with my performance. I appreciate all the work done by the staff.

I felt my voice starting to crack trying to overcompensate for a very messy sound set-up and feared really damaging my voice if I continued ...under those conditions. I wish to give a 100% at all my shows and tonight I was unable do that.

I truly apologize to students and staff.. ...but the risk of damaging my voice was just too great. Sorry 1000 times and my team is taking steps to make sure this never happens again.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the concert w/ @3eb and have a great rest of the school year.

  4. Bad sound doesn't happen often... but it does happen... I would've ended the show early myself. Hope th homie doesn't catch flack for this.. I'm sure he'll show mad love to Bucknell when he gets the chance.

  6. having to compensate for bad sound can do some serious sometimes irreparable damage to your vocal cords. Only a fool would have continued. This was a wise move on Lu's part .. especially considering he mentioned he was on voice rest a few days prior via twitter..

  7. Don't whine about opening and then moments later say the sound sucks and walk off. Not a good look. Finish the show.

  8. You got some bad days. I don't care what anyone thinks, but Lupe was totally not in it when he said his first line.

  9. This is actually the worst thing Lu can do in my opinion. Twitter rants, criticizing the government, preaching/whining is all cool by me, but you're a performer and that's your job. The crowd may not have been it but I guarantee there were people that made sacrifices to see you perform. I don't see how you can defend this.

    1. In the words of Juaquín Murrieta.... "That is because you are stupid."

  10. A few days ago, he did say he was on voice rest. So, I don't think he was lying...

  11. The crowd don't even look like they were into it smh. I love to see Lu perform, so I would've been hella mad if he had to end the performance early while I was there.

  14. Lu was gracious enough to apologize. Some other celebrities would have just left stage and wouldn't say anything about it. Rihanna cut short of a concert she did in my country and didn't even say anything about as though nothing happened.

  15. Lu's only human; of flesh and blood he's made....born to make mistakes....

  16. When an artist preforms well and sounds good then the artist is just "that good". When an artist preforms poorly then its the sound company's fault. I have seen this hundreds of times, they all look to blame someone else. Just the nature of the industry.
