If I expected to see Iggy Azalea on tour this fall, prepare for some bad news. The next Azaela tour of North America, which was supposed to be the first in four years, has been canceled. Live Nation, the promoter of the tour, confirmed the news on Monday in a statement. The cancellation comes a week after Chicago native rapper CupcakKe, who was supposed to be opening the Azalea on the tour, announced he was not coming.
The Bad Girls tour of 21 dates was scheduled to begin with a show in Hollywood on October 27 and ends with a performance in Houston on December 4.
"Due to unforeseen circumstances, Iggy Azalea's The Bad Girls tour was canceled," says Live Nation's statement. "Refunds are available at the point of purchase."
While there is no official information on the reasons why the tour was canceled, several reports claim that the shows did not sell well.
Iggy Azalea also confirmed the news through Twitter.
"Believe me, I was very excited for this tour, and I'm really disappointed that it can not happen this year, the choice was out of my hands and I did not call to do it, I hope to see them all in person some day. "she wrote. "All I can do is keep pushing, keep taping and keep a smile on my face."
Believe me, I was very excited for this tour …
and I'm really disappointed that it can not happen this year –
The choice was out of my hands and it was not my decision.
I hope to see you all in person someday.
I love you ❤️

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