The Jay Z concert scheduled for Pinnacle Bank Arena Dec. 6 has been canceled.

The show, which would have brought the hip-hop mogul back to Lincoln, was scratched because of technical difficulties in bringing the production to the arena.

“Due to the scale of this production, we cannot get the screens up on time into the building in Nebraska,” Jay Z said in a statement. “This tour is too important to me to do it halfway. I have to cancel the show. Same with Fresno. I respect you guys too much to take the money and run. Peace, Hov."

Refunds for purchased tickets will be made at the point of purchase — ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster outlets or the arena ticket office.
