A recent show at Jerry’s Pizza & Pub in Bakersfield, Calif., left a bad taste in some fans’ mouths when rapper Andre Nickatina left the venue almost immediately after taking the stage.
Although the promoter of the gig issued a statement saying he was working to resolve issues with Nickatina’s management following the show, the venue was flooded with complaints from angry fans.
Jerry’s took matters into its own hands, extending a pizza slice to the burned concertgoers.
“Although Jerry’s Pizza does not carry any responsibility for this show, we would like to offer some consolation to those that purchased tickets,” management said in a statement. “Jerry’s Pizza would like to invite the ticket holders from the Andre Nickatina show (on Nov. 20, 2009 @ Jerry’s Pizza) to visit his establishment for a free meal and beverage (up to $8 value). Please present your ticket stub to redeem this offer.”
Nickatina’s show was reportedly about 30 seconds long. He did some freestyle rap then said he needed to have five minutes so his DJ could get set up correctly, never to be seen again.
