Morgan Wallen set off a firestorm on social media after abruptly canceling his Mississippi concert minutes before he was supposed to take the stage.

The country star was scheduled to perform Sunday night at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium as part of his “One Night at a Time World Tour.” The musician played the same venue Saturday night along with opening acts Hardy, Ernest, and Bailey Zimmerman. But then, right before he was scheduled to begin his portion of the show Sunday night, Wallen announced that he was unable to perform.

Fans who had sat through the opening acts saw a message posted on video screens in the stadium saying the show was canceled because Wallen had “lost his voice.” The message instructed them to make their way safely to the exits and assured them they’d be issued a refund for the event at the point of purchase.

Concertgoers headed to social media to express their disappointment.

“Drive 10 hours for a concert, Morgan cancels… at least we saw Hardy! The amount of grown women crying on ground was insane,” one person tweeted.

“Completely disappointed in [Morgan Wallen]!! Been sitting in this stadium for 3 hrs and he just announced the show is canceled!!! COMPLETE BULLS***!!” another person wrote.

Hey [Morgan Wallen] Thanks for ruining my 10 year olds first concert experience after driving 3 hours, paying a butt load to park, and having us sit there 5 hours before cancelling,” one mom tweeted alongside a string of angry face emojis. She also included a photo of her child enjoying the concert before finding out about the last-minute cancellation.


Wallen shared a personal update later via his Instagram page.

“After (Saturday) night’s show I started losing my voice so I spent the day resting up, talking to my doctor and working through my vocal exercises trying to get better. I really thought I’d be able to take the stage and it kills me to deliver this so close to showtime, but my voice is shot and I am unable to sing,” he shared. “All tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. I am so sorry, I promise you guys I tried everything I could.”
