Iggy Azalea, comin’ straight outta Mullumbimby crack rock to the pop-pop or whatever, has finally thrown in the towel on her embattled Great Escape Tour, she announced in a public statement today. All dates will be canceled, and money will be refunded to anyone who paid to see ... whatever this is:
And if certain rumors are true, that’s really not a lot of refunds.
Although the official story has been that Iggy delayed the tour for months to make sure it lived up to her exacting standards (that may be half-true, because word is she’s really not much fun to work with), it also might be that Iggy Iggy is not biggie enough to headline an arena tour.
Here’s a graphic from March purporting to show that her ticket sales were in the toilet:
That’s a half-full Staples Center, and tickets had been on sale for more than 3 months.
“There will be a new tour planned around Iggy’s new record to be released in 2016 and we apologize for any inconvenience,” Iggy’s statement threatens.
“It’s my first arena tour. And I’d like it to not be my last arena tour,” she said in March, when she initially rescheduled the entire thing.
Best of luck with that.
