Promoters of a Lil Wayne concert that was canceled three times in 2008 are facing lawsuits.

According to Courthouse News Service, a group of unnamed investors are taking Edward Strickland, Andre Langston and RMF Productions to court for their part in the cancellation of the confirmed show.

The investors filed papers in Rochester, New York saying they paid the concert promoters $180,000 for the show.

Lil Wayne is not a party in this lawsuit but was connected to a lawsuit filed last year by the same promotion company being sued today.

Edward Strickland, the general manager of RMF Productions, filed a lawsuit against Wayne and his manager Cortez Bryant in February of 2009 for canceling the concert.

In the $1.3 million dollar lawsuit the promoter claims he gave Wayne $100,000 in advance money for the concert that never took place.

Weezy was originally scheduled to perform on October 26, 2008 at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester but reportedly cancelled because he was unhappy with the sound system.

Following that he was set to make up the missed date on December 6, 2008 but canceled again, this time because he had to rehearse for his “I Am Music” tour.

The final make up date was set for January 21, 2009 but he pulled out again and reportedly blamed “the logistics of his band.”

Weezy never made up the concert to disgruntled fans.
