Report: Ashanti Concert Cancelled Over Low Ticket Sales

Ashanti may have two number one albums to her credit, but one university was unable to generate interest in her show.

Stony Brook University in New York was scheduled to host the “Foolish” singer for their “Back to the Brook” event.

Unfortunately, the show was reportedly cancelled over “low ticket sales,” according to Bossip. Only 24 tickets were sold, according to a statement from the university.

Teyana Taylor was originally scheduled to headline the event but pulled out on two weeks notice. The concert organizers scrambled to promote Ashanti as the new headliner but seemingly struggled.

“As an organization, we do our best to host programs for students while providing diversity and inclusion,” the university said in a statement. “However, we have struggled to execute certain aspects. With only a week before the concert, only 24 tickets were sold to students.”

Ashanti is currently working on her seventh studio album, expected to release in 2018. It is her first major project in four years.
