Grammy Award-winning R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo is already in trouble – just a few days into the New Year. According to Seattle’s King5 News, Ne-Yo was a no-show at a much-anticipated New Year’s bash and has yet to issue refunds. Billed as the biggest New Year’s Eve bash in the Bellevue area, featuring the “Year of the Gentleman” star, the Meydenbauer Center charged concertgoers $75 – $1,200 for tickets and exclusive VIP access – unfortunately for them there would be no Ne-Yo, no “Miss Independent” and definitely no performance of “Closer”. Party-goer Michael Brandt told King5: “At 11:30 they had a pre-recorded message from Ne-Yo. He was on a plane from Nigeria and not able to come. They probably knew a day in advance. They could have cancelled or given a refund.” Promoted for weeks, the Meydenbauer concert sold nearly 300 tickets but the promoters have yet to refund ticket holders who attended the bash with the hope of seeing Ne-Yo. If you’re searching for a refund King5 says good luck. the sponsor Wet Entertainment can’t be found on the web and the local marketing manager’s phone no longer works.
