G-Eazy Cancels Concert After Being Denied At The Border With Canada
Calgary, Canada – G-Eazy seems to be having a tumultuous couple of months. Since his arrest in Sweden to the recent breakup with Halsey, the Bay Area rapper continues to have successes.
The 29-year-old was forced to cancel a show in Canada after he was denied entry into the country. According to TMZ, was arrested at the border by Canadian customs agents after it landed in the city of Calgary. Eazy was scheduled for the owner of the Cowboys, Music Festival, on Monday (July 8).
The headquarters issued a statement via Twitter to explain the debacle, and offers refunds to concert-goers.
"Cowboys regrets to inform you that G-Eazy is unable to perform tonight due to reasons out of our control," the statement read in part. "The refunds will be processed at the time of the purchase."

The Cowboy Music Festival coincides with the Calgary Stampede, a huge rodeo festival that is held every month of July.
It is not clear why Eazy was not allowed in the country. In May, pleaded guilty to assault and drug charges after his arrest in a Swedish nightclub.
In a statement sent by e-mail to the CBC, an official of the Agency of Canada Border Services said he can't talk about the details of your case.
"Admissibility of all travellers is decided on a case-by-case and based on the information available to the border services officer at the time of entry. All persons seeking entry to Canada must demonstrate that it meets the requirements to enter and/or remain in Canada.
"There are several factors that are used in determining admissibility into Canada, including involvement in criminal activity, human rights violations, in organized crime, security, health or financial reasons."
Eazy has yet to address the situation publicly.
