Pitbull apologizes for last-minute concert cancellation on Grand Prix weekend

The rapper and singer blamed transportation issues for not being able to make it Saturday evening. “We are sorry to everybody in Montreal.”

The American rapper and singer Pitbull has apologized after cancelling his Saturday concert at Parc Jean-Drapeau, where fans waited for hours under heavy rainfall to watch him perform for Grand Prix weekend.

“We want to start off by saying we are sorry to everybody in Montreal. We apologize,” he said in the first of three apologies in his 36-second message, posted at about 11 a.m. Sunday to X, formerly called Twitter.

“Due to transportation issues, we weren’t able to make it tonight and those are things that out of our control,” he said.

Pitbull, whose real name is Armando Christian Pérez, was sporting a Trackhouse Racing cap, dark glasses and a short-sleeved shirt as he made his announcement.

“So to everybody there tonight, I look forward to seeing you all soon in Montreal and I always thank you for the love, thank you for the support and thank for all for the opportunity … And once again Montreal, once again, sorry, apologize and look forward to seeing you all soon.”

Pitbull is known by many nicknames, including Mr. Worldwide and Mr. 305. He referred to himself using both those monikers in his post.

Mr. Worldwide is said to represent the widespread recognition of his music, while Mr. 305 refers to the area code of Miami, his hometown, and is intended as a tribute to the city that shaped his identity and career.
