JAY-Z cancels Nebraska concert due to issues with video screens

The show won’t go on for JAY-Z in Nebraska.

The rapper canceled an upcoming concert Lincoln’s Pinnacle Bank Arena because his crew would be unable to set up the video screens he uses inside the venue in time for the show.

“This tour is too important to me to do it halfway,” JAY-Z, 47, said in a statement to the Omaha World-Herald. “I have to cancel the show.”

“I respect you guys too much to take the money and run.”
