Kanye West Cancels Remaining Saint Pablo Tour Dates After Concert Rants
Kanye West has officially canceled the remaining tour dates on his Saint Pablo Tour. Things have spiraled downward quickly over the past few days after he went on a lengthy rant in San Jose on Thursday, where he expressed his support for President-elect Donald Trump, much to the dismay of the crowd.
He then went to Sacramento on Saturday night and after four songs, launched into a nearly hour-long rant about a dizzying number of topics spanning music, politics and more. He went after other artists like Drake, Beyoncé and Jay Z, who he said might have hit men come after him. He questioned President Obama's blackness. Snoop Dogg even became a voice of reason and had to ask "what the f*ck is he on?" in in a reaction video.
Last night, Nov. 20, he was scheduled to make up a show in Los Angeles at The Forum from a Nov. 3, which he ended early because he lost his voice. However a few hours before the show began, ticketholders got a message that the concert had been canceled.
Rumors started to swirl that the entire tour would be put on the chopping block and according to Live Nation representatives, it has been.
In a statement, Live Nation confirmed the news. "The remaining dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been cancelled. Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase."
He had a busy end of November and December schedule in front of him with Arena gigs in Denver, Houston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Toronto, Detroit and elsewhere in North America. West was going to end the year with two nights at Barclays Center on Dec. 30 and 31, which now throws the arena's NYE plans into chaos.
