Tyler Perry joined the Tom Joyner Morning Show this morning to discuss his spot on the Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage but not before dropping some major news exclusively to Joyner and the crew.
Currently, Perry is on his widely popular nationwide stage act tour "Madea Gets a Job," but according to Perry the show is coming to a screeching halt.
According to Perry, just last night he and his promoter decided to postpone his tour in an effort to stifle bootleggers from tripling the cost of show's tickets.
Exclaiming, "I set the ticket prices at $25 dollars, $45 dollars, and $65 dollars. Nobody can get tickets for those prices. The bootleggers come, they buy the tickets, they mark them up."
Perry expressed his frustration saying, "I don't want people out there spending $150 dollars per ticket. People can't afford it."
The tour has just eight weeks left and Perry says it would have been his final tour, "that’s why I had to postpone the tour until we figure out what to do."
He goes on to say, “I’m really, really upset about it and very disappointed because there are a lot of people.. who I was looking forward to coming out to see it and this is the last tour I was going to do.”
Perry will be opening up for Earth, Wind, & Fire on the Fantastic Voyage Cruise during a private beach party.
Other performers include rapper Ludacris, singer/actor Jamie Foxx, rapper Snoop Dogg, and Bootsy Collins with more to be announced.
The cruise sails April 7-14, 2013.
