Akon Banned from Melbourne Arena

According to Allhiphop.com, Akon has been banned from performing in Melbourne, Australia.

He is scheduled to to join Soulja Boy, Flo rida, Jay Sean, Stan Walker and Ciara in the Summerbeats 2010 Tour.

During the tour they will hit up Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane, however Akon cannot perform at the Melbourne venue, the Rod Laver Arena on November 25th…

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

Allhiphop.com reported that in the past, Akon’s audience in Melbourne has been a little too wild.

If Akon were banned from the entire tour it would be a entirely bad look for him, but if he can very hold the crowd well in the other three cities on the 19th, 20th and 23rd and there is a positive and fight-free atmosphere, Melbourne would still have the time and the freedom to add him to the line-up for the 25th.
