Kanye West abruptly ends his United States "Saint Pablo" tour.
UPDATE: Ticketmaster has confirmed that the remaining dates on the "Saint Pablo" tour have been cancelled. The company has been responding to ticket holders on its Twitter account, telling them that full refunds will be put into their accounts within 5-7 business days. After the cancellation of the tour was announced, TMZ caught up with a source close to Kanye, who has explained that Yeezy had to abandon his "Saint Pablo" shows due to being overworked.
"He's just exhausted," said the source. "He's been working around the clock on fashion design, both his own line and the Adidas line." The source also said that Kanye wants to spend more time with his family, especially in the wake of the violent robbery his wife suffered in Paris last month. The stress and exhaustion plaguing Kanye might at least be partly responsible of the unraveling of the last couple of shows, which were characterized by controversial (even by his standards) onstage rants.
Original story below:
It's a trying time for Kanye West fans. In the past 36 hours, he went on an extended rant against Beyonce and Jay Z and cancelled his show in Inglewood, which was originally scheduled as make-up date for the show he cut short earlier this month. It gets worse -- Los Angeles Times reporter Gerrick Kennedy reports that Kanye has cancelled the remainder of his United States "Saint Pablo" tour.
The current 21-show leg was added towards the end of the tour's initial leg. The tour has been praised for it's innovative flying stage, the latest in Kanye's history of stage design excellence. If you haven't caught "Saint Pablo" yet, your best bet may be Europe.
