Lil Uzi Vert won't be hitting the road anytime soon.
Well, that was short-lived...
Just one day after it was announced that Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti would be hitting the road together for a new U.S. tour, those plans now seem in serious jeopardy. Lil Uzi Vert took to Twitter earlier today (October 19th) to dash any hopes that fans had some seeing him live again in the near future with the message that he'd be skipping out on the planned tour altogether.
"Not going on tour wit carti need 2 focus," was what the young emcee wrote, giving no indication or specific reasons as to why he's bailing on the planned live dates, nor was there any word on his absence being a postponement than an outright cancellation. However, with one single tweet, Uzi put a whole slew of tour stops in jeopardy of even happening now. Those who were looking forward to the upcoming tour hitting their city (or one nearby) are now asking themselves one question:
Presale tickets for the shows were supposed to begin today, but that may change given the nature of Lil Uzi Vert's decision. General tickets were going to be made available tomorrow, October 20th. On Twitter, fans are now openly questioning the Philly native's commitment to his existing live dates, with a much-hyped return to the city of Chicago on the horizon. While there's no word on whether the 16*29 shows will go on or not, you can check out a list of the planned concerts below. Who knows, maybe Uz will have a change of heart.
