A Prince concert in Switzerland has been canceled after a fight between the promoter and the Geneva venue.
The Purple Rain hitmaker was due to perform for fans at the Stade de Geneve  on Friday but Prince has been told the show can’t go on.

Fans with tickets will be refunded.

A spokesperson for the singer says, “Due to apparent difficulties between the promoter and the venue, Prince has been informed he is now not able to perform.”

“Prince is disappointed for all his fans in Switzerland who were due to travel to Geneva. Having played to a phenomenal audience at the Montreux Jazz Festival last year, he was very much looking forward to performing in Geneva.

“Those due to attend the concert should hold on to their tickets for now and will be informed in a few days how to apply for reimbursement. Prince’s tour continues at the Espace Nikaia in Nice on Sunday night.”
