ATLANTA (WAOK)-Rick Ross has notified Georgia State University (GSU) that he will be unable to perform at Friday’s Homecoming concert due to health concerns.

Ross was scheduled to perform as the headliner at the Homecoming concert Friday at the Tabernacle in downtown Atlanta. However, Ross suffered two seizures last week while traveling to various concert performances.

Concerts Director George F. Baker, III, said, “We are disappointed he had to cancel, but completely understand that Rick Ross needs to take care of himself at this time. We hope he is better soon.”

Baker noted that due to the late cancellation, there is not time to arrange another performer for “it takes 8 – 12 weeks of work to negotiate availability, fees, and contracts to just schedule a concert.”

We could never find a new artist in three days and be able to sell tickets and promote it effectively,” said Baker.

All ticket purchases will be refunded at the point of sale where the purchase was made.

Refunds for GSU students who purchased tickets at the University Center will begin at the Campus Tickets booth Thursday, October 20, and be available until Friday, October 28.
