Kanye West cancelling remainder of 'Pablo' tour
After a week full of new Kanye West rants, the rapper is calling the rest of his U.S. tour off.
After abruptly canceled a show in L.A. Sunday night, LA Times is reporting that West has informed his crew that the remainder of the Saint Pablo US tour is canceled.
Ticketmaster confirmed the cancelation, telling buyers that refunds are being processed and will be returned within 5-7 business day.
Kanye West was scheduled to perform at the Palace of Auburn Hills on Dec. 22, a previously scheduled concert which was postponed in October.
Kanye West left thousands of his California fans disappointed this weekend, cutting one show short and canceling another.
On Saturday night the singer cut his Sacramento show short, performing only two songs and engaging in a long rant about politics, the media and Beyonce and Jay-Z.
Ticketmaster announced Sunday that it would give a full refund to those who bought tickets to the Saturday show through its network. "We understand that last night's show was cut short," they wrote to ticket holders.
On Sunday, hours before he was due to take the stage for a concert at The Forum in Inglewood, California, the venue and Ticketmaster announced the show had been canceled and refunds were to be given.
The Golden 1 Center, where the Saturday concert took place, has a 17,500 capacity, according to its website. Tickets to West's other shows in California range in price from $26 to $135.
On Saturday, West came on stage 90 minutes late, according to concertgoers, and told his audience they couldn't believe Hillary Clinton had lost "Cause you was lied to by Google. You was lied to by Mark Zuckerberg."
West made another reference to Clinton's defeat while taking aim at radio executives. If radio stations "keep following old models," he said, they would be "Hillary Clintoned."
West, who once posed for a selfie with Clinton and his wife, Clinton supporter Kim Kardashian West, told an audience earlier in the week that he didn't vote in this year's election but if he did he would have voted for Donald Trump.
The artist also took aim at some of his fellow celebrities, encouraging Jay-Z to call him back and talk to him "like a man," and also suggested that Beyonce won video of the year at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this year because she agreed to perform at the event.
Addressing the media, West told them to "get ready to write your passive aggressive" and "racist comments" before telling the audience the show was over. He dropped his microphone and walked off the stage.
