CANCELED! #KanyeWest CANCELS remaining #StPabloTour dates! [details]
WE saw this coming! DESPITE tickets being sold... venues booked, floating stage built...Kanye West has CANCELED the remaining 21 dates on his 'St Pablo Tour' after a CRAZY political rant and SWIPES at Jay Z & Beyonce in Sacramento! Here are the DETAILS!!!
Kanye West has canceled the rest of his Saint Pablo Tour after two controversial concerts, according to a source familiar with the situation but unauthorized to speak publicly.
Tickets for the canceled shows will be fully refunded at the point of sale.
The 39-year-old rapper was due to play Fresno, Calif., on Tuesday, with 20 more concerts scheduled through the end of the year in major cities including Orlando, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Boston. The tour was set to end with a two-night stint at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Dec. 30 and 31.
The polarizing hip-hop star, who released his seventh album The Life of Pablo in February, has had mixed success with live performances this year. His headlining set at New York's Governors Ball music festival in June was canceled due to inclement weather. He closed out The Meadows Music & Arts Festival in New York last month, only to cut his set short due to a "family emergency" (the robbery of his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, during Paris Fashion Week).
West launched his Saint Pablo Tour in late August, earning positive reviews for his innovative use of a "floating stage." The rapper sold out all 22 shows he played this fall, raking in $30.3 million, according to BoxScore. Before the tour's cancellation, ticket prices for his New Year's Eve show in Brooklyn averaged a whopping $295 on resale sites, MusicTimes.com reports. [source: USA Today]
