The organizers had released a statement apologizing for how the show ended, noting that it was done for the safety of everyone present.

The swift evacuation of the star according to reports, is that one of the security personnel at the event reported losing his gun in the fully packed indoor hall, which prompted the organizers to end the show and prioritize the safety of the star and everyone present at the show.

The United States has a record of gun violence which has increased over the years, and recently an American artist PnB Rock was shot dead at a restaurant in Los Angeles, California.

However, despite the apology, some fans had demanded for a refund from the organizers of the show.
