R&B singer Ashanti's latest concert has been cancelled - after only selling 24 tickets. The concert was to take place in Long Island, NY - Ashanti's HOME TOWN.
Unfortunately, Ashanti no longer receives love from the city where she was born and raised.
The concert was supposed to be at the State University of New York at Stony Brook University. But the school had to cancel their 'Back to the Brook' concert.
The school claims that they only sold 24 tickets - even though the school has 25,000 students. The university's undergraduate student government decided to publish the information that only 24 tickets were sold for the concert being headlined by Ashanti, and opened by Justine Skye and Stony Brook University's very own The Voice contestant Kelsea Johnson
Now, it's not totally Ashanti's fault. According to the YBF come to find out, Teyana Taylor was originally booked to perform and had to pull out due to "unforseen circumstances" two weeks prior to the show. The production team scrambled to get a new headliner, and eventually nabbed Ashanti to perform. However, the college kids weren't grabbing tickets to see her perform.
The 'Back to the Brook' concert for the Fall 2017 semester was headlined by Post Malone and completely sold out.
