Rapper 50 Cent, who was scheduled to perform in Phoenix on Tuesday, postponed his concert due to extreme heat conditions.
On Monday evening, the artist announced in a post on the platform X, formerly known as Twitter, that his Final Lap Tour concert set to take place at Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre in Phoenix will be rescheduled.
The rapper said people who purchased a ticket can go to the point of purchase for instructions on how to get a refund. According to Live Nation, a company managing ticket sales for 50 Cent’s concert, people can hold on to their tickets as they will be valid for a new concert date.
50 Cent will “be back in Arizona soon,” he said, but has not released a new date for the show.
Excessive heat warnings rolled into Arizona this weekend and were expected to remain in place through Tuesday evening, according to the National Weather Service.
The Phoenix area saw record temperatures on Monday, reaching a high of 117 degrees, becoming the hottest day ever recorded during the month of August.
Tuesday could potentially tie it, with temperatures forecast to climb up to 116 degrees, according to the weather service.
“116 degrees is dangerous for everyone,” the artist said.
