As u may know, the tour is cancelled. I'm so sad and sorry to let my fans down…we'll be back out on the road when the next album is done.

Azalea confirmed the cancellation in a tweet later Friday. A rep for the rapper had not responded to Billboard’s request for comment as of press time.
The tour had been slated to kick off Sept. 18 in San Diego. The tour’s cancellation comes just months after the rapper rescheduled the dates for the trek back in March “due to production delays.”
At the time she explained why she wanted to bump the original slate of tour dates. “It is bumped back because I am a psychopath. It is my first arena tour, so it’s a big undertaking and I’m doing a lot of the creative direction, which I do for everything,” she told 97.1 AMP Radio back in March. “It’s tough when it’s your first time working on an arena situation.”
