Earlier this month, K. Michelle and Azealia Banks told fans that they were hitting the road together for a joint tour. Two weeks later, the pair has announced that the gig is up before it even started.
So what happened?
Apparently, the “V.S.O.P.” singer’s calendar is already filled to capacity, and she didn’t have time to perform a series of concerts. She broke the news to Banks via e-mail, and Banks shared the upset to her followers via Twitter.
She tweeted, “…I just got an email from @kmichelle team and she is unfortunately unavailable this fall so she is canceling our tour.”
The rapper is disappointed, but she is currently attempting to save some of the dates so that she can embark on her first U.S. tour.
K. Michelle is regretful, too.
She posted a lengthy message on Instagram to express her sincerest apologies and to attribute the postponement to a busy schedule that includes “filming numerous television shows, readying my businesses and working on my new album.”
“I simply cannot overexert myself anymore than i already am,” she admitted.
Hopefully, the two will find a way to shut down stages together in the near future.
Hey Rebels! To say I am crushed is an understatement. I try my best to push myself over the limit and if you don’t listen to your body it will make you listen. While currently filming numerous television shows, readying my businesses and working on my new album, I simply cannot overexert myself anymore than I already am. So it is with a broken heart, I have to postpone the tour with me and @AzealiaBanks at this time. Before the negativity and assumptions from naysayers and media outlets begins, I’d like for everyone to know the truth. First, there is absolutely no drama between me and Azealia. We have a mutual respect for each other as women and artists. I can’t wait to get in the studio with her and for you all to hear what she’s been working on. Secondly, it wasn’t low ticket sales. Due to such an overwhelming response with this tour there have been conversations about adding a second show in various cities. Above all, my fans mean the world to me and the last thing that I want to do is disappoint. I want to thank all of you for having my back and supporting me throughout the good and the bad. I can’t wait for all of you to see what’s in store and hear this new music! All tickets that have already been purchased will be refunded and I’ll see you guys at the top next year! New album. New tour. ❤️ -K. Michelle
