Lil Wayne was a no show at the Life Is Beautiful festival.
The Young Money boss was scheduled to take the stage at the 7th annual festival in downtown Las Vegas on Saturday night, but 10 minutes into his set, festival organizers announced that he would not be appearing.
The crowd of thousands had gathered for his 9:20 p.m. performance. His “Young Mula, baby!” intro played shortly before a message appeared on screen: “Unfortunately, Lil Wayne will not be able to perform tonight. Sorry for any inconvenience.”
Concertgoers were seen piling out of the venue. Upset fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment, while others demanded refunds.
“Unbelievable, Lil Wayne cancels last minute at Life is Beautiful. Had a huge crowd waiting for his performance too,” tweeted one fan, while another expressed concern for Wayne’s wellbeing: “I hope Lil Wayne is okay. He been pulling out of a lot of show dates.”

This is just the latest in a series of cancelations for Weezy. He bailed on his St. Louis show with Blink-182 earlier this month, claiming he was kicked out of his hotel after cops showed up. But the police say Wayne and his crew left voluntarily after a verbal dispute with the hotel staff.
