“We just got word from Omar’s management that issues with his passport will prevent travel to the United States this weekend,” the post said. “We are working to reschedule a new date as soon as possible and notify all ticket buyers when we know more.”

Reps from the club say they are working with Souleyman’s management to “lock in a new date” and communicating with ticket buyers via email.
