Following his last-second concert cancelation last week, Morgan Wallen is back, but he's still not his best self.
Before the country superstar returned to the stage in Florida on Thursday, May 4, he apologized to Mississippi fans for pulling the plug on his April 23 concert moments before it was set to start.
"What's up, everybody? I just wanted to let you know I am in Jacksonville, we are going to play a show tonight — and all weekend. I wouldn't say I'm 100% but I'm doing a lot better," the "Last Night" crooner said in an Instagram video. "And to everyone in Oxford, I just wanted to reiterate how sorry I am for the way that went down. I thought I was going to be good to go and I just wasn't."
Morgan and his team are working on rescheduling the axed show, which 60,000 fans attended.
The terminated show angered many fans, as they were told of the cancelation via a video screen after the opening acts had already played.
"Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Morgan has lost his voice and is unable to perform tonight. Therefore, tonight's show has been canceled," the message read. "Please make your way safely to the stadium exits. Refunds for tonight's event will be available at point of purchase."
On Instagram, Morgan said he was on "doctor-ordered vocal rest." The last minute cancellation caused one person to file a lawsuit for the supposed financial pain caused. Brandi Burcham claimed promoters are only offering to reimburse the cost of tickets even though she also spent money on expenses related to the show including "transportation, lodging, food, merchandise sales, transaction fees" and more. Another woman said Morgan owed her $3,982 for her troubles. She expected him to pay her via CashApp (she claims she's owed $629 for a shopping spree at a place called Rebel Rags).
Then, to add to the confusion, a viral TikTok video showed a security guard from the venue saying the vocal-rest excuse was "bull crap." The unidentified guard alleged that Morgan was "too drunk" to perform, "couldn't walk" and was taken away from the venue by ambulance. The man's employer and Morgan's record label refuted the security guard's allegations.
