The singer then pulled out his pockets and handed them $140 from the stage, signed hats for them and stated a member of his staff can be escorting them backstage to offer them T-shirts and different memorabilia.
However that wasn’t all.
Combs “announced that he was still going to perform but, because of the condition of his voice, he did not feel he could put on a real show,” the radio station stated.
“Because of that, he was going to refund the money concertgoers had paid for tickets to the show,” in response to a publish on the station’s web site. “Visibly upset with the situation, he explained that he understands the cost of going to a concert goes way beyond what is paid for the tickets. For many people there are hotel rooms, dinners, babysitters, gas, and more. Refunding the price of the tickets was, in his mind, the least he could do.”
Combs nonetheless carried out an abbreviated set.
The singer’s act of generosity received him reward from followers.
CNN has reached out to a rep for Combs for remark.
