As we previously reported, Rick Ross was unable to perform at Detroit's 107.5's Summer Jamz 17 after falling victim to Trick Trick's 'No Fly Zone."
Ross and his entourage were met by at least 100 individuals and blocked when they attempted to enter Chene Park, the venue where the concert was being held.
The Right Productions, Inc., operators of Chene Park issued a statement regarding the situation.
“This incident greatly saddens me and our entire team at The Right Productions who work so diligent to host and produce outstanding entertainment performances at Chene Park. Reports from our venue operations and security teams indicate nearly 100-150 individuals orchestrated a human blockade around the service entrance to the venue – preventing Mr. Ross and his entourage from entering the premises. A decision was made from Mr. Ross’ team the conditions were becoming threatening and posed a security risk,” said Shahida Mausi, president and CEO of Right Productions, Inc.
“We want to extent our deepest regrets to our patrons who attended Summer Jamz17 who should have been treated to an outstanding performance from Rick Ross. We have the upmost respect for our guests at Chene Park and they deserve better. This is the fifth Summer Jamz event we have hosted with our partner Radio One and Host 107.5 FM – and until this point with no incident. Acts of intimidation, bullying, threats or violence of any kind that compromises the security and enjoyment of our shows will not be tolerated at Chene Park.
I will be reviewing this matter with our collective team and sponsoring host to ensure the integrity and respect we hold for our patrons and artists is upheld for future acts performing at Chene Park Amphitheater,” added Mausi.
