Sounds familiar, though, doesn't it. He disappointed 1,500 paying partygoers in the process, and stuck a 23-year-old newbie promoter with a loss of about $20,000.
His manager claimed that his flight was cancelled, but inquiries with the airlines proved that that wasn't true. The "dependable" Vick missed his flight and in turn missed his appearance for which he received one half of his $10,000 fee up-front. The promoter had also agreed to cover $5,000 in travel expenses for Vick.
The best part? When he promoter spoke with Vick, Vick was rude and unapologetic. Shocking, I know!
Vick never ceases to amaze.
