Diddy

Why I REALLY

Canceled My Concerts ...

4/29/2011 9:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Diddy is finally explaining why he canceled five upcoming concerts -- claiming it had nothing do with low ticket sales -- it was a "logistics" issue ... whatever that means.

Amidst reports that ticket sales were in the dumps, a rep for Dirty Money tells TMZ, "A few dates for the 'Coming Home' tour in Florida and Missouri were canceled due to production and technical logistics which made it impossible for Diddy Dirty Money to perform the best show for their fans."

The rep adds, "The remaining shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Phoenix are scheduled as planned and will mark the ending to a widely acclaimed tour."

The rep wouldn't say anything more specific about the "logistics" issues ... which could be about a million different things ... from the stage ... to the lights ... to the temperature of the champagne fridge in Diddy's dressing room.

DDM should change his name to Duddy. What did he start with anyway? Mac Daddy? Like Prince he rejected his own identity and has to suffer the consequences. I think it's due to his cough drinking problem cough.

That's strange - because about two weeks ago there was a Groupon-type deal in Toronto for half-price tickets to his show.

I didn't know he was still making music much less touring. Maybe that's the problem! LOL! I neve saw what the big deal in this jerk was. He is such a pompous a$$ and thinks that because he has money he is better than anyone else. Anyone who gives their son a maybach for a birthday gift is just ridiculous! I agree that it wont be long before he is as irrelevant as most of us think him to be.

Why would any performer waste money on the "logistics" of traveling from point "A" to point "B" to venues in which "NO ONE" wanted to "PAY" to see them perform??? His explanation sounds perfectly logical to me. These shows are getting more expensive every year and consumers are becoming much more "selective" about who they want to patronize. Diddy isn't the only performer who's having these issues. This should be a "wake-up" call!!!
