Morgan Wallen Is Being Sued by a Fan for Canceling His Concert
Morgan Wallen’s recent decision to cancel a Mississippi concert after losing his voice didn’t sit well with some fans who were already in the stadium when the announcement was made. Now one fan is taking legal action by filing a lawsuit against the singer.
Morgan Wallen Sued by Fan for Canceling Concert
According to TMZ, a federal lawsuit was filed against Wallen on Monday by Brandi Burcham, accusing the singer of breach of contract and negligence. Burcham says the University of Mississippi (where the concert was supposed to take place) has not issued refunds.
Burcham also argues that ticket refunds don’t cover other expenses such as transportation and food. The fan reportedly wants to make this a class action lawsuit to get other fans involved. She certainly isn’t the only one who was angry over the last-minute cancellation, as evidenced on social media.
One Twitter user called Wallen a “piece of sh*t,” saying they “sat there and froze our damn asses off” and “spent hundreds of dollars on drinks and merchandise and everything else” before learning that Wallen would not be performing.

Wallen Has Rescheduled More Shows This Week
Mississippi isn’t the only show that’s been affected by Wallen’s lost voice. On Monday, he took to Instagram stories to share that he is now “on doctor-ordered vocal rest.” Because of this, three more shows had to be rescheduled.
“I appreciate and understand everything you do to get to my shows, so it would be unfair of me to put on a show that I know will not be 100%,” Wallen wrote. “I’m doing everything I can to speed up the process of getting to that 100% mark.”
Wallen’s show in Grand Rapids, Michigan, will now take place on June 27; his show in Moline, Illinois, will now take place on September 8; and his show in Lincoln, Nebraska, will now take place on September 9.
Tickets for the original shows will be honored for the new dates. Wallen told fans to check with their point of purchase to ask about refunds.
