Wiz Khalifa

Concert Cancelled

In Wake of Backstage Shooting

breaking news

0823-wiz-khalifa-tmz-02Wiz Khalifa's concert in Chula Vista, California Saturday night has been cancelled ... following a shooting that broke out in the backstage area of his gig the night before.

A Ticketmaster employee tells us the show was cancelled this afternoon ... but no further details were made available to them at this time -- and the venue hasn't picked up their phone.

As we previously reported ... a man was shot to death backstage at Khalifa's concert near San Jose Friday night.  One source tells us the man was shot at least 5 times.

Cops tell us they believe the shooter and victim had no connection to Wiz ... which makes the concert cancellation slightly confusing.

Wiz says, "Due to a situation out of our control, tonight’s UTIOM show is cancelled. This was a senseless tragedy.  Violence is never the answer.  My prayers go out to the victim’s family."

If you're shot 5 times guess what... you most likely deserve to die.

Its not surprising they cancelled. Regardless of whether they knew wiz, a man got killed! Since it happened back stage maybe some of his employees saw it and needed a day or two to get over it? Who knows! But is definitely not surprising.

Lets see, Chula Vista is somewhat near San Diego, but nowhere near San Jose as the story reads.

Weird that it happened back stage. Why weren't they checked for weapons? Everytime I go to the arena by us, they check our bags and wave medal detector over us. That is just for hockey and basketball games.
