SHARE After postponing tour, Iggy Azalea now totally cancels it

At this rate, by the time Iggy Azalea gets to the Allstate Arena, she’ll be an oldies act.

The “Fancy” rapper tweeted Friday thather Great Escape Tour scheduled for fall, including a scheduled Oct. 2 Rosemont concert, has been canceled.


Originally announced in December, the tour was to bring Azalea to the Allstate on May 1. In March she postponed the launch until fall, blaming production delays, with the Allstate date reset for Oct. 2.

Representatives from Azalea’s record label, Def Jam, and tour promoter, AEG, didn’t return the AP’s emails seeking comment. Azalea didn’t offer any details about the second cancellation.

The Grammy-nominated rapper, whose recent single is “Pretty Girls” with Britney Spears, tweeted that she’ll “be back out on the road when the next album is done.”

Azalea said she’s still committed to several upcomingfestival performances.
