PartyNextDoor visted Dallas with support from Jeremih, THEY., and Tone Stith, as part of the Summer's Over Tour, on December 2nd, but the show left some wishing the fun of summer had stuck around.

Emerging artist's and openers, Tone Stith and THEY., managed to rile up the crowd and keep them engaged with their songs before the anxious tickets buyers began chanting for the headliners to visit the stage.
Unfortunately, the excitement was overshadowed by an unidentified attendee, who managed to sneak in pepper spray, and heavily douse the air with it, at some point during THEY.'s set and throughout Jeremih's set. After past mishaps from shows, including getting upset after having his sound cut off in Chicago, his hometown, and having an imposter take his place on stage, it was clear the spray was meant in retaliation. This lead to Jeremih not being able to smoothly go through part of his set without coughing every few words, and transitioned into a rant in which the words “PartyNextDoor and his crew some bitch-ass n*ggas," flew out of his mouth.
However, Party seemed to be unfazed once his set started, in which, at that time, the air had cleared. No comments were made to even acknowledge what had just happened before he stepped out, and the crowd seemed to be perfectly fine with it. What was different about him, was the amount of energy and charisma put out during his set. The "Not Nice" singer is usually known to not utilize the stage size or interact with fans, but on this night, he put a little more effort. It still wasn't much, but it was noticable.
By the time the weekend was up, Live Nation made the call to drop Jeremih from the tour, immediately, in a statement saying, “After multiple incidents we are left with no other choice. We do not support these actions or take these actions lightly.”
The tour made their final stop yesterday, but we've got some shots from Dallas, in case you didn't get a chance to catch to experience a show.
