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.

    My friend told me of the cancellation so sad that we didn't get the chance to enjoy the last live stage play, I truly understand that this is completely out of your hands. At least I know we are connected to a truly God fearing individual for someone to take the time out of what I know could be an extremely busy schedule and speak to your fans is really touching. Thank you for being honest and letting us know what was going on. I hate that we live in a society where people are so evil but hey that's life we have to take the good with the bad. May God continue to bless you and all your future endeavors I am truly a fan and will continue to follow, can't wait to see the new movie.....

    ALEX CROSS (Tyler Perry) will be in theaters on Oct.19th which is only days away! Go & enjoy a action thriller, heart pounding excitement on Oct. 19th. Watch as he (Tyler Perry) show you another side of himself. James Patterson(author of Cross) says, he's very compassionate, smart, etc & like to hunt down serial killers. I think its going to be outstanding! I can't wait to see TP in ACTION! :-) Lots of time in this life people hate to endure change but change is growth. Even kids stop crawling so they can run, jump & walk. I say, keep up the good work Tyler Perry, you are loved & appreciated in whatever you decide to do. Do you thang!!!!!!! I'm so excited about this upcoming movie you are starring in. I can't stop thinking about seeing you in action. And if I do like it as much as I believe I will, I will be going to see & enjoy it more than once or twice, for that much. Lol... I got Good Deeds playing right now. My favorite part is the 2PAC part! Lol... Then the song right after is is LOVELY! :-) Don't worry about us we're gonna be alright believe that. Oh & Madea's WitnessProtection comes out just days after Alex Cross hits the big screen, that following Tuesday Oct.23rd?!?! Now u know I gotta sit & get my laugh on with that one all over again. This time in the presence of my home. Lol... Smh.. too funny! Have a good night & we love you T! Thanks for all you do, even the parts we are so unaware of. You are a true blessing. And we love & adore you. Forever means forever; no ending. Lol... :-)

    Mr. Perry, My wife and I have always enjoyed your Madea live shows. We always made sure we were early, didn't want to suffer the wrath of Madea for being late. Hate to see the show end, hopefully circumstances will change and some way this problem can be controlled. It's a shame that the few spoil such a great inspiration from you to laugh and enjoy ourselves at your plays. Thanks for the great shows and again hopefully this is not the end.

    I bought these tickets in advance so I can give it to my mom on her birthday. Her birthday is on November 4th and this show was playing in NY on the 17th. We love Tyler Perry's character as Madea. I know she would of loved seeing the show. I don't want my money back. I want to make a trip to Madison Square Garden, get some snacks and laugh my head off. Maybe you can do another show in the future. Please reconsider this being the last show.

    Madea in NYC..wow! When I first heard that, I was THRILLED! Finally I would get a chance to see one of my favorite characters Live! I was deeply disappointed that the show was canceled and that it just happened to be the show that was going to be the end for awhile. I hate that a few bad apples spoiled the bunch for the rest of us. I still love your work and hope to meet you one day in person to tell you how much I thank you and how you inspire us to follow our dreams and never give up! Hopefully if you decide to bring Madea back to the stage, nothing will stop you from making that happen! God Bless!!
