Azealia announced the bad news via Twitter and briefly explained why their highly anticipated trek was canceled. “I just got an email from @kmichelle team and she is unfortunately unavailable this fall so she is canceling our tour,” Banks tweeted.
Banks adds that she’s already working on rescheduling some of the shows as solo dates. “Unfortunate news as this was my first U.S. tour. But my team will work on an alternative plan to try and keep some of the dates in order !” she adds. “New Tour dates will be up soon !”
Meanwhile, K. Michelle offered an explanation in a lengthy Instagram post, in which she denied any rumored beefs with the rapper or stagnant ticket sales.
After explaining that she’s working on multiple projects all at once, she wrote: “I simply cannot overexert myself anymore than I already am. So it is with a broken heart, I have to postpone the tour with me and @AzealiaBanks at this time.” She adds: “There is absolutely no drama between me and Azealia. We have a mutual respect for each other as women and artists. I can’t wait to get in the studio with her and for you all to hear what she’s been working on. Secondly, it wasn’t low ticket sales.”
All fans with previously purchased tickets will be granted refunds.
