Live Nation has announced that almost all of Iggy Azalea’s North American tour dates have been cancelled, reportedly due to low sales.
While there was no explanation as to why the tour was significantly cut back, a large number of tickets were still available for the four dates that had not yet been cancelled late Saturday night.
The ‘Bad Girls’ tour was set to be a 21-city, five-week run, but was her first on four years and likely contributed to the low sales.
“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: “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.”
Azelea’s opening act CupcakKe announced last week that she would no longer be on the 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.”
