Given the tragic events that unfolded in the city last weekend, Atlanta rap titan Future has decided to cancel his August 19 show in Charlottesville and a 20 August show in Virginia Beach. On Thursday (17 August), which revealed its decision to cancel both the shows was "out of respect" through Twitter.

"Out of respect for the tragic events it seemed to me that it was not the rite to be performed at this time..please understand my heart to say so it GOES #FutureHendrix, of the Future," he wrote.
