While short notice, it will come as welcome news to those who missed his show yesterday.
Crowds of fans had packed into the Arena to watch the rapper but, shortly after his set was due to begin, a message appeared on the screen which said: “Unfortunately Lil Tjay hasn’t arrived on site and we haven’t been able to contact him. We hope he will arrive soon.”
A new message appeared around 30 minutes later, which said: “Unfortunately Lil Tjay will not be performing this evening.”
