Twenty minutes ago, Kodak Black jumped on Instagram to clear up any misconceptions regarding the tour dates he was forced to cancel yesterday. Mind you, I do stress the word "misconception" because as it stands, Kodak Black fans in Canada will not be issued "make-up" for the cancellations affecting bookings in Montreal (4/22), Toronto (4/23), and Vancouver (5/7) in the immediate aftermath of his charges being dropped.

Kodak's written statement serves two functions. On one end, the post was published to emphasize that his NYC concert will not suffer the same fate, even though it lies between Toronto and Vancouver on his travel itinerary. Secondly, due to the unforeseen circumstances, Kodak Black will be asked to switch venues on a moment's notice. His statement reads as follows.
"Due to unforeseen circumstances with the original venue," the memo reads. "KodakBlack’s April 25th show will now take place at the @UnitedPalaceNYC in New York. All tickets for the April 25th Hammerstein Ballroom show will be honored at United Palace. The GA Hammerstein tickets will be exchanged for a seat at United Palace upon admission. Seat locations will be distributed on a first come, first served basis."
For what it's worth, Kodak Black did offer his Canadian fans an apology. As it stands, the NYC concert will go on as scheduled (tonight) at the United Palace in place of the Hammerstein Ballroom, so plan accordingly.
