But right now I’m heartbroken and panicked and I just want to know when/that you all get home safely. I love you guys more than anything,” adding that she wanted to play “more than anything” but going ahead would have been “SO unsafe”.

Slamming those running the Post Pavilion, the musician (born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane) added: “I really want to add that I am beyond disappointed with the way the venue handled everything tonight and my rescheduled date will be happening somewhere else. I hear you guys loud and clear I promise.”
