INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — LL Cool J is bringing The F.O.R.C.E (Frequencies of Real Creative Energy) Tour to cities across the U.S., but Indianapolis is no longer on the list.
The hip-hop legend launched the tour — which has Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Method Man & Redman, Ice T, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony performing in select cities — in Baltimore on August 11.
In April, LL Cool J announced plans to perform in Indianapolis at Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Sunday, Aug. 20.

Ticketmaster says ticketholders can expect refunds within 30 days.
