Kendrick Lamar was supposed to be the headliner at the Summer Jam concert presented by Hot 104.1 (WHHL) according to a River Front Times blog post. According to them, no reason for the cancellation has been given. This isn’t the first time he’s cancelled a show in St. Louis either. He was supposed to drop by with Kanye West as part of the Yeezus tour in 2013, but the gig “was canceled after some of the gear for the stage show was damaged in an accident.”
The blog goes on to say they’ll be updating as more information becomes available. It’s going to be interesting to see if a reason for the cancellation is given by anyone in Lamar’s camp. While the show last year was due to equipment, there’s no telling why the show won’t go on in wonderful St. Louis this year. Apparently, Kendrick isn’t the only musician to cancel a show in the city.

In the last six months a bevy of high-profile pop and rap artists have canceled their St. Louis stops, including Big Boi, Miley Cyrus and West. Kendrick Lamar now joins that list…again. St. Louis just can’t catch a break, it seems.
And according to St. Louis Today, “Added to the bill are rappers Yo Gotti, Ty Dolla Sign and Cash Out.”
