Due To Circumstances That I Can't Control...

Unfortunately, due to circumstances that I can't control, we've had to cancel this leg of the Madea Gets A Job tour.

Here's why. I set a ticket price for the show starting at $25. The reason I set the price so low is so that everyone could get a chance to come out and see the show. I know how tight things are right now. I GET IT! I do not tour to make a living, I tour because I love staying connected to all of you. I love seeing your faces, hearing you laugh and seeing you enjoy yourselves. It gives me great joy. Even though it's a lot of work, I really don't mind doing it. Because of that, what I do is make sure that the promoter sets a reasonable ticket price and the prices are $25, $45 and $65. Even though I set these prices so that they are affordable, fees are added that are out of my control and the price of the tickets can almost double. Add to that, when you go online looking for tickets, IN LOTS OF CASES, you are being led to a bootlegger and you don't even know it. There are a lot of ticket bootleggers and scalpers that buy lots of shows and sell them to the public for double, sometimes triple the price. I've been dealing with this for years but now with the internet I've never seen it this bad.

Also, there are some horrible people who are pretending to be me or representing me on Facebook and charging people money to do a meet and greet on the tour. They are telling people that they are me or working for me and charging them $150 for a meet and greet after the play.  DON'T FALL FOR THIS!! That's not me.

This is so frustrating! Why are people so evil? Why can't people just get legitimate jobs and stop trying to do the wrong thing all the time? If they put the same amount of energy into doing the right thing as they do in doing the wrong thing they could make it. It's so sad.

To all of you who have bought tickets and made plans to be there I am so sorry. I really am but my hands are tied.

This was the last live Madea tour and I'm super sorry that you won't get to see it live. All refunds should be given back to you.

    I was so disappointed when ticketmaster sent me the notification that my money was being refunded because the play was cancelled, but I was not disappointed with you guys I was disappointed in the fact that I bought these tickets for a very special girl who has always wanted to see one of your plays live for herself. Ever since I've known her she has always talked about how amazing you guys are. So naturally, when I heard that you guy were coming to town I immediately bought my tickets knowing that this could very well be the only chance she would ever get to see it live in person and so I could surprise her next month for her birthday, but now I'm back to the drawing board trying to figure out what to get her...she's only missing 2 of your plays on DVD so I just might get her those instead...

    Hi Tyler, My heart breaks... a few of us was looking forward to attending your live show at the Key Arena in Seattle. So bummed... that I won't ever have the chance to see you live. I love all your live shows (dvd's) and movies. I hope you continue making more... can't get enough of Madea! Bless you Tyler for having such a great heart. You have Integrity and I highly respect you for that! May God continually pour out His blessings upon you and your team, wherever and whatever your plans for the future may bring. With Love, Johanna

    This is probably the most deppressing thing i have heard all day one of the things that ive been looking foward to since i heard about it. One thing i really always wanted to was see one live play because i have seen every movie made I can basically recite almost every line to alot the movies and plays i guess everything happens for a reason and just more thing i will never get to do that i have wanted to since i watched my first tyler perry play :(

    Always remember the devil comes not but, for to kill, steal, and destroy he can only do so much. I went through somewhat of the samething last week. There are people that don't want to see you blessed. The Lord gave me a song a longtime ago, The devil don't like it when your blessed like that it was a true statement some songs go a long way look it up online I don't remember who sings it but , you will be encouraged by it. The work that you do will get to us one way or another the Lord will see that it does. Well I'm going now I'll write more later your in my prayers always,Keep me in yours. God Bless and Keep you.
