Iggy Azalea Tour Canceled

"The choice was out of my hands and not my call to make," the rapper tweeted about the cancellation.

UPDATED: Nearly all of the dates on Iggy Azalea’s “Bad Girls” North American tour have been canceled, according to the tour’s promoter, Live Nation. The 21-city, five-week tour, her first headlining trek in the territory in four years, was scheduled to kick off Oct. 27 in Hollywood, Fla. and wrap Dec. 4 in Houston.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Iggy Azalea’s The Bad Girls Tour has been cancelled,” the statement from Live Nation reads. “Refunds are available at point of purchase.”

The rapper tweeted Sunday, “Believe me – I was really excited for this tour… and I’m genuinely disappointed it can’t happen this year. The choice was out of my hands and not my call to make.” She followed with another tweet that said, “All i can do is keep pushing, keep recording and keep a smile on my face.”

While there was no elaboration on what those circumstances were, a large number of tickets were available for the four dates that had not yet been canceled late Saturday night, and Azalea’s long stretch out of the spotlight — both the tour and her recent “Survive the Summer” EP were her first in four years — probably contributed to low sales.

Opening act CupcakKe announced Tuesday that she would no longer be on Azalea’s tour due to a “change of plans,” further implying on Saturday that the tour was in trouble by claiming in a social media post: “Listen y’all , I went from getting paid 330k on this tour to 30k that’s what I mean by “change plans”……………. THIS WAS NOT IGGY THAT CHANGED PLANS !!!!! It was the ones that put it together !!!!! Iggy knows I love her …. I just need that bag IN FULL that’s all.”

There was no notice of the cancellations on Azalea’s website at press time; reps for the rapper did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment.
