I was disappointed by the benign review that critic Glenn Gamboa wrote regarding "KTUphoria 2015" at Jones Beach, where Pitbull was a no-show ["Singing in the rain," News, June 1].

Gamboa said that, "Pitbull's cancellation allowed Shaggy and Ricky Martin to extend their sets." That's an interesting way of phrasing the facts.

As soon as performer Jason Derulo announced that Pitbull would not be appearing, the overwhelming majority of the audience made a mass exodus. Pitbull was the headliner; all of the other acts were enjoyable, but they weren't the reason people came.

I hope Pitbull's fans receive at least a partial refund.
