Damian Marley cancels Jannus Live concert on Nov. 17




It was supposed to be a benefit for the Caribbean Education Foundation, helping needy kids attend high school. Now, it won't happen at all -- at least for now.

Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley has canceled his Nov. 17 concert at Jannus Live, according to the venue. Refunds are available at point of purchase. The full statement:

STAND UP - FT. DAMIAN MARLEY has sadly been CANCELLED by the artist. No further information has been given, but we assure you the Jannus Live team has every intention to bring Jr. Gong back to St. Petersburg. Refunds available at point of purchase.

Jannus Live is a venue that knows a thing or two about concert cancellations (see: Diddy-Dirty Money, Great White, Big Boi, Sean Paul, Grupo Mania and others.) For fans of reggae, this one is particularly disappointing.
