American rapper and producer, Kanye West, has cancelled the remaining 21 dates of his Saint Pablo tour.
The news comes days after a very passionate Kanye went off-script at his Sacramento concert to blast Hillary Clinton, Jay-Z, and Beyonce.
“It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton, it’s a new world,” West had said during the concert. “Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt. Feelings matter, bro.”
“Beyonce, I was hurt because I heard you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won video of the year over me and over Hotline Bling. In my opinion – now don’t go dissing Beyoncé, she’s great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are – just to win.
“I’ve been sent here to give ya’ll my truth, even at the risk of my own life. At the risk of my own success. I’ll give ya’ll the truth. Jay-Z call me bro, you still ain’t called me. Jay Z, I know you got killas. Please don’t send them at my head. Talk to me like a man.”
This came a day after West had revealed that he did not vote in the 2016 presidential election but would have picked Donald Trump because “his approach was genius”.
He had said: “Not only did I not vote, but there were a lot of things I actually liked about Trump’s campaign. His approach was f****** genius – because it worked.
“That don’t mean that I don’t think that black lives matter. That don’t mean that I don’t believe in women’s rights. That don’t mean that I don’t believe in gay marriage. That don’t mean that I don’t believe in these things because that’s the guy that I wanted to vote for.”
No reason was given for the cancellation of his tour while West has not personally commented on the announcement.
Tickets for the shows will be refunded at points of purchase.
The 39-year-old rapper was expected to perform in Fresno, California on Tuesday, with 20 more concerts scheduled through the end of the year.
West’s tour was meant to end at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, New York, on December 30 and 31.
