Iggy Azalea’s Tour Cancelled
Even though she’s riding the wave of being awarded in several Best Rap categories at the Billboard awards (an honor many aren’t too pleased about), Iggy Azalea’s having yet another tough week. Her much maligned headlining tour has officially gone from put on hold to nonexistent. Fans who bothered to purchase passes to the tour dates were informed via e-mail today that TI’s great white hope wouldn’t be hitting a stage near them anytime soon.
Earlier this year, Iggy Azalea made headlines when she pushed back what was supposed to be a summer arena tour. The updated slate of performances was pushed to the fall; the Australian rapper was scheduled to embark on her first headlining swing this September in San Diego. At the time, she cited production and staging issues; she also went on the radio and referred to herself as “a psychopath.” Now, according to Just Jared, her entire tour has been canceled, ticketholders learned via email. The statement read:
“The Iggy Azalea Great Escape Tour scheduled for this fall has been cancelled and refunds are available at point of purchase. There will be a new tour planned around Iggy‘s new record to be released in 2016 and we apologize for any inconvenience.”
Tinashe and Nick Jonas, who were originally supposed to be the support acts for The Great Escape Tour, already dropped off when the dates were pushed back. The tour was planned in support of The New Classic, Azalea’s 2014 debut that spawned hits like “Black Widow” and the Charli XCX-featuring “Fancy.” In interviews, Iggy has said that she’s in the studio working on her second studio album.
