Apparently promoters and concert producers jumped the gun on this one. After originally announcing that Usher would be performing in Hawaii in December at Aloha Stadium, we now learn that the event was never even authorized. This according to attorneys that represent Usher.
Attorneys representing Usher notified the Honolulu Star-Advertiser today that Usher will not be performing, and that the promoter, Memphis-based NuDawn Entertainment, “never had the authority to represent [Usher] in any capacity” and that Usher had “not approved or otherwise granted permission” to the promoter make any commitments on his behalf.
The letter, which was also sent via email to NuDawn Entertainment, described the Aloha Stadium concert as an “Unauthorized Event” and demanded that NuDawn run advertisements “stating that the promoter of the Unauthorized Event never had permission to book the Unauthorized Event and [Usher] will not be appearing.”
This is sad news, as thousands of fans were gearing up for a new year’s show featuring the R&B crooner. Looks like fans will need to make other arrangements, cause as of right now, Usher will not be appearing in Hawaii anytime soon. We will of course let you know if things change.
