Over the weekend, Live Nation announced the cancellation of Iggy Azalea’s North American “Bad Girls Tour,” citing “unforeseen circumstances.”
Initially, the “Fancy” rapper was set to hit 21 cities in five weeks to mark her first headlining tour in the states in four years. The show was set to kick off in Hollywood, Fl on Oct. 27, and end in Houston on Dec. 4, but now, refunds will be available at point of purchase.
“Believe me – I was really excited for this tour..and I’m genuinely disappointed it can’t happen this year,” Azalea said in a tweet. “The choice was out of my hands and not my call to make.”
“All I can do is keep pushing, keep recording and keep a smile on my face,” she said.”
Though further details on the cancellation remain unclear, there were a good amount of tickets still available ahead of the announcement. In fact, days before the official cancellation, opening act CupcaKKe announced that she would no longer be on the tour because of a “change of plans.”
Then, on Saturday, she explained further, saying, “Listen y’all, I went from getting paid 330k on this tour to 30k that’s what I mean by ‘change of 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.”
