Psy to miss 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball due to White House invite; will perform at Tampa's University Mall instead
As with Psy's Gangnam Style video, there's a lot to process in this news.
The Korean pop/hip-hop star had been booked to perform at the 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball on Dec. 9 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. But according to the station, Psy has been forced to withdraw from the Jingle Ball lineup for a most unlikely reason: He's been invited to perform at the White House. That's right! President Obama is jacking Tampa's Gangnam Style! Can you believe it?
The good news is, Psy is still coming to Tampa. He will appear and perform at "Jingle All the Way," a free, radio-sponsored event at University Mall in Tampa on Dec. 8. The event runs 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Psy will perform around 4:30 p.m. giving him plenty of time to get to Y100's Jingle Ball in South Florida that same night. 93.3-FLZ will be on site all day, giving away Jingle Ball tickets every 15 minutes.
Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Sean Kingston and others are still booked for the Jingle Ball on Dec. 9, and tickets are still available. Click here for the details on the new Psy-less show, as well as his appearnace on Dec. 8.
