“Great Escape” tricked everyone by being terminated completely. Fans who were looking forward to seeing Billboard Award-winning artist Iggy Azalea were let down when the singer’s team announced the tour has been canceled, Complex wrote. Ticket holders were emailed about the situation Friday morning.
"The Iggy Azalea Great Escape Tour scheduled for this fall has been canceled and refunds are available at point of purchase,” the statement said. “There will be a new tour planned around Iggy's new record to be released in 2016 and we apologize for any inconvenience." People will be given a full refund.
It’s not the first time Azalea’s tour had trouble. When it started, it was postponed and acts were changed, Perez Hilton noted.
Still, many fans are wondering why the “Fancy” singer canceled the tour. She hasn’t explained it yet on her official social media account, but the last time things with the “Great Escape” tour went haywire she said it was because she was a “psychopath.” The Australian rapper, whose real name is Amethyst Kelly, sat down with KAMP-FM in Los Angeles in early March to explain what happened.
“It's my first arena tour so it's a big undertaking and I'm doing a lot of the creative direction … we're doing a custom stage and custom build … when you're building a stage and things like that, you do it about six months in advance,” she said. “So I really considered what do I want to do: keep and honor the tickets and this date for fans but not the show I'd envisioned or kind of promised them, a lesser version of it with maybe not so many people like jumping out of the ceilings and flying all over the place, or do I want to move it and have the absolute best show, the show that I envisioned, and obviously I've chosen to move it."
Guess the fans will have to wait to say why she completely nixed it. For now, it remains a mystery.
