After earning more than $100,000 at the M83 Music Festival, actor and comedian, Ben Folds, was on his way to the front lines of the Ebola crisis, but was forced to cancel the concert after a virus outbreak hit the United States.
The star, who is part of the comedy troupe “The Big Bang Theory,” said he was “not at peace” about his decision to go to the event.
“It was just a big, big, huge mistake,” Folds said.
“I was not at peace with myself.
I had to make the right decision.” “
This is my life and I am not at liberty to make decisions.
I had to make the right decision.”
Folds added that he was a fan of M83’s “Good Life” tour, which was set to end last Friday at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
“You know, this is what happens when you’re in a situation where you want to be there for your people,” Fold said.
The M83 star said that while the concert had not been planned with a quarantine in mind, he did not feel that his presence was a threat to the United Kingdom or the United Nations.
“We’re here to celebrate music, but we’re not there to be a threat.
I’ve been a fan for a long time,” Fould said.
He also addressed his critics.
“They’re like, ‘Why would you cancel this show?
Why would you go to a country where you have no control over the people?'”
Folds explained that he felt like he was taking the heat for canceling the show, but that he understood why people were upset.
“If people are upset with me, that’s fine,” he said.
Folds also said that he had not received any threats against him from people who were angry about his canceling of the concert.
He said that it was a mistake and that he hoped that he could come back next year to perform at the festival.
