Riverbend Festival organizers say Cee Lo Green won’t be invited back to Chattanooga’s signature summer celebration.
The Grammy-winning pop/soul singer’s gutter language as he performed on the Coca-Cola Stage on Saturday triggered a storm of complaints from festivalgoers.
Joe “Dixie” Fuller, the festival’s talent and production coordinator, said he answered “very, very, very many disgruntled e-mails” this morning.
“It’s safe to say he won’t be coming back,” added Chip Baker, executive director of the Friends of the Festival.
Fuller said festival officials will complain to Green’s management and promised there will be no repeats of Saturday night’s performance.
“I will turn the music off if that happens again,” he said. “I’m very disappointed and I apologize to the entire city. Those were not my wishes.”
