Jason Derulo 'gets city name wrong at gig after-party'

Jason Derulo shocked fans when he shouted "hello Wolverhampton" during a nightclub appearance in Worcester.

The 'Talk Dirty' hitmaker held his after-party at Tramps in the city following a gig in Birmingham, central England, on Saturday (30.01.16), but some supporters were left disappointed at the event, claiming the 26-year-old star was only on stage "for about 10 or 15 minutes".

One fan, Laura Clifton, who has asked to be refunded after splashing out £8 on a ticket, told Worcester News: "We thought it would be a good way to finish the night after we went to his concert in Birmingham.

"It was a really great concert - it was just a pity Worcester was an absolute let down and ruined the night.

"The DJ shouted, 'Jason Derulo's in the house,' but we were like, 'well, where is he?'

"When he did finally get on stage it was only for about 10 or 15 minutes.

"He said, 'Hello Wolverhampton,' and we were shouting, 'Worcester!' He didn't even know where he was.

"Maybe he should have gone to Wolverhampton instead."

Another supporter on the nightclub's Facebook page wrote: "What a waste of time. 2 hrs late for a start paid the extra for vip, that was pointless.

"Very disappointed to pay £20 to watch him dance to a justin bieber song with his mates for 5 mins...

"Wasted everyone's time, never seen a place clear so quickly with disappointment!!! (sic)"

But club manager Dean Hill insists the singer was on stage "a lot longer than 10 to 15 minutes", and said the venue has received plenty of positive feedback.

He explained: "People have complained he didn't perform but we said from the start he wouldn't be, it was an after-party.

"Unfortunately, you are probably going to have a few people who are not satisfied.

"We had 1,300 people in and have had positive feedback so it is only a few people complaining.

"Jason and his entourage were here until 4.10am, he was on stage a lot longer than ten to 15 minutes."

According to the Manchester Evening News, Jason was due to host an after-party at The Milton Club in Manchester, north west England, tomorrow night (04.02.16), but the event has been cancelled following "some negative responses due to a lack of hosting" at other parties on his tour.

The Milton Club said in a statement: "We have been closely reviewing other after parties booked in the UK throughout the tour, where there have been some negative responses due to a lack of hosting, therefore after much consideration we have decided it best to cancel this event and ensure we do what's best for our guests/members and venue."

They have offered fans a refund and are still planning to open, offering a free entry after-party.
