Tommy Lee Blames High Crime Rate In Trinidad For Flopped Show

Dancehall star Tommy Lee Sparta received some bad press last week after his highly publicised Trinidad show ended before it even started.

The “Uncle Demon” deejay was billed as the headline act for “Sparta The Concert” at Guaracara Park in Pointe-a-Pierre, Trinidad.

However, promoters of the event called off the show at approximately 2 a.m. after only nine patrons made their way to the venue.

A rep for Tommy Lee sent Urban Islandz a statement blaming high crime rate and the location of the venue for the poor turnout.

“Besides rain at the out door venue, Trinidad is presently experiencing a spike in crime rates and most persons did not feel comfortable going out to the event,” Tommy Lee reps said in the statement. “The location selected by the promoter was farfetched in South Trinidad.”

Since the incident, Tommy Lee has released two new singles titled “Do Weh Mi Feel” and “C4.”
