NEW YORK, NEW YORK - JULY 10: Kehlani performs onstage at IN BLOOM, imagined by Kehlani presented by Grey Goose Essences at Pier 17 on July 10, 2022 in New York City.

Kehlani’s recent show in Philadelphia was cut short after the R&B singer noticed several fans began to pass out.

It’s unclear as to why suddenly fans began to pass out but in a clip posted by a concertgoer on Twitter, Kehlani advocated for the safety of her fans. “I can’t have this,” she told the crowd Monday night (August 15). “This is not okay. I don’t feel comfortable, I don’t feel okay and I don’t feel like anybody’s safe right now. I love you, too.”


Later that night Kehlani took to her Instagram Story and wrote per Stereogum: “I care about you guys more than anything and I put you before anything else. Thank you so much to the venue and staff for your diligence and swift care for everyone in my audience.”

They added: “Cannot stress how much I love all of you, and how important you are to me. Seeing you all on tour for the first time in so many years has really reminded me what I do it for. I hope you know how deep my love runs.”

Per a report from Rolling Stone, no one was transported to the hospital, though three concertgoers required some first aid. Twelve fans just needed water and “a space to rest and relax.”

“Throughout the set, the artist asked her fans to step back from the stage and make space for each other, something we appreciate and the artist has done in many of her other shows,” a Mann Center rep told the outlet. The Mann Center also gave out free water to concertgoers near the front.

“As you can imagine, the safety of guests and artists is always the venue’s top priority,” the rep added.

Kehlani released their third studio album Blue Water Road in April. The project debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard 200.
