UPDATE: 13 Nov

Friday Jams Live regretfully announce T-Pain will no longer be performing in New Zealand at the concert series or at his headline show in Wellington due to an illness in the family. We wish T-Pain and his family all the best at this difficult time and hope fans are respectful of this decision.

In light of this unfortunate decision, smooth musical trio Next, best known for their #1 hit single ‘Too Close’, will be joining the Friday Jams Live line-up and Usher along with DJ Lil Jon will extend their set to an 85-minute extravaganza with all artists on the line-up increasing their performance time.

T-Pain has shared this message with his fans: “I want to deeply apologize to my fans for not being able to make it to Australia and New Zealand. I have a close family member in the hospital whose condition just got severely worse and it is important for me to be home with him in this super difficult time. I hope you understand and I promise to make it up to y’all soon. I was really looking forward to giving you a great show at Friday Jams Live. I love you my fans and thanks for the continued support and prayers for my family.” - T-Pain
