The singer then pulled out his wallet and handed them $140 from the stage, signed hats for them and said a member of his team would be escorting them backstage to give them T-shirts and other memorabilia.
But that wasn’t all.
Combs “announced that he was still going to perform but, because of the condition of his voice, he did not feel he could put on a real show,” the radio station said.
“Because of that, he was going to refund the money concertgoers had paid for tickets to the show,” according to a post on the station’s website. “Visibly upset with the situation, he explained that he understands the cost of going to a concert goes way beyond what is paid for the tickets. For many people there are hotel rooms, dinners, babysitters, gas, and more. Refunding the price of the tickets was, in his mind, the least he could do.”
Combs still performed an abbreviated set.
The singer’s act of generosity won him praise from fans.
CNN has reached out to a rep for Combs for comment.
