The Internet has been abuzz with the turn of events related to a recent Lupe Fiasco appearance at the House of Blues Chicago. Concertgoers were expecting a performance, but instead received a brief appearance, according to this blog post by WBEZ.

Later, Fiasco took to Twitter to say, among other tweets: “Come on chitown press & media. I said i was sorry for the HOB event & it wasn’t even my fault.”

Apparently, there was a mix-up between what the event promoters advertised and what was actually delivered.

Fiasco’s fiasco shows the importance of developing a positive reputation with the press before something bad happens. Coverage of this disaster has been minimal and it’s likely due to the rapper’s past favorable image.

But hey, Lupe, if you’re reading this, offer up a free concert to ticket holders. Every disaster offers an opportunity to turn negative publicity into positive publicity.
