Iggy Azalea‘s Bad Girls North American tour has reportedly been cancelled, according to tour promoter, Live Nation. The five-week tour was set to cover 21 cities, and scheduled to kick off October 27 in Florida.
Nearly all of the dates on Iggy Azalea’s “Bad Girls” North American tour have been cancelled
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Iggy Azalea’s The Bad Girls Tour has been cancelled,” Live Nation said in a statement. “Refunds are available at point of purchase.”
The news comes days after her opening act, CupcakKe, announced she would no longer be performing on Azalea’s tour due to a “change of plans”.
“Due to a change of plans, i unfortunately will no longer be able to attend tour with Iggy. I’m grateful for the opportunity… and I’ll be going on tour by myself when the album drops… be looking out for dates,” she wrote.
A few days later she took to Twitter to further justify her decision, claiming that the money she was originally offered for the tour was reduced dramatically.
“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,” CupcakKe tweeted.

While we don’t know what the “unforeseen circumstances” are, many are attributing it to low ticket sales, as a result of the 28-year-old’s long stretch out of the spotlight.
