Melbourne, Australia Wants No Parts Of Akon In It

- By Bossip Staff

Pretending to chop down young girls or comparing your package to Wyclef’s on stage may not get you banned from a venue in Australia. Neither will throwing young boys off a stage.

But breaking up a fight just might?

Akon has been banned from performing at a show in Melbourne, Australia, due to the audiences’ raucous behavior in the past.

Akon and Ciara were announced as new editions to the Summerbeatz 2010 tour, which is taking place in Australia November 19th-25th and also features Soulja Boy, Flo Rida, Jay Sean and Stan Walker.

According to organizer Dwayne Cross, Akon has been banned from performing at the Rod Laver Arena on November 25th, after a wild incident at the Hisense Arena in 2009, when the singer jumped into the crowd to break up a fight.

While all the rappers are cleared for the other cities, Akon can only perform in Brisbane, Sydney and Perth.

“It’s with great regret that we announce that Akon will not be performing in Melbourneon the Summerbeatz 2010 Tour,” Cross said in a statement. “This is due to restrictions put on us by the Melbourne venue Rod Laver Arena.”

Sounds like hate, Rod Laver Arena. It’s okay though, Akon! Keep staying away from rappers and urban music like you’ve been doing and you might be able to stop scaring promoters.
