If you hoped to see Iggy Azalea on tour this fall, brace yourself for some bad news. Azaela’s upcoming tour across North America, which was supposed to be her first in four years, has been canceled. Live Nation, the tour’s promoter, confirmed the news on Monday in a statement. The cancelation comes a week after Chicago-native rapper CupcakKe, who was supposed to be the opening act for Azalea on tour, announced she wouldn’t be coming along.
The 21-date Bad Girls tour was set to kick off with a show in Hollywood on October 27th and wrap up with a performance in Houston on December 4th.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Iggy Azalea’s The Bad Girls Tour has been canceled,” Live Nation’s statement reads. “Refunds are available at point of purchase.”
While there is no official information about the reasons why the tour was canceled, several reports claim that the shows were not selling well.
Iggy Azalea also confirmed the news via Twitter.
“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 call to make. I hope I will get to see you all in person one day. I love you,” – she wrote. “All I can do is keep pushing, keep recording and keep a smile on my face.”

This is the second time Azaela cancels a North America tour. She was set to embark on a 21-city tour, titled Great Escape Tour, back in 2015 in support of her debut album The New Classic and her then-announced second studio album. After the tour was rescheduled in March 2015, it was completely canceled two months later.
