In what should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been following this week’s entertainment news, the Warner Theatre has canceled Tracy Morgan‘s June 19 show.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, our Tracy Morgan show scheduled for 6/19 has been cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.— Warner Theatre (@DCWarnerTheatre) June 9, 2014
The comedian was critically injured—-and fellow comic James McNair (aka Uncle Jimmy Mack) was killed—-when a Walmart truck crashed into his limousine bus early Saturday morning on the New Jersey Turnpike. According to Morgan’s publicist, the 30 Rock star won’t be able to leave the hospital for several weeks.
Live Nation Director of Marketing Sarah Sample says Morgan’s team asked the company to cancel the show “after tending to [Morgan’s] personal well-being.” Ticket-holders who bought tickets online or by phone will be refunded automatically; box office buyers should return to the theater for a refund.
