Pop sensation Psy cancels Jingle Ball for White House, will perform at Tampa mall instead

Published Nov. 30, 2012

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" on Dec. 8, a free, radio-sponsored event at University Mall in Tampa. 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, and tickets are still available: (813) 301-2500.
