Tiny Apologizes To Xscape Fans Over Essence Festival
Xscape is apologizing to fans that were unable to see their recent show at Essence Festival. On Sunday (July 2nd), the group, who reunited earlier this year, were set to perform but chaos surrounded some of the logistics regarding their set. The group performed in one of the smaller lounges, as opposed to the main state. However, the number of people that wanted to enter the room for the performance, exceeded the room’s capacity. Chaos broke out with people being stuck outside of the lounge. At one point, the Fire Marshall shut the lounge completely down. Attendees also began complaining on social media about not being able to attend their performance.

You travel all the way to New Orleans just for Xscape alone and Essence puts them in a lounge that gets shutdown 20min prior #EssenceFest
