Last month, fans were shocked when Kanye West canceled the remaining U.S. dates of his Saint Pablo tour, and now, it sounds like the same thing is happening to the international leg of his shows, too. According to TMZ, West is reportedly canceling his European tour dates, although that part of his tour had yet to be officially scheduled and no tickets had gone on sale. So far, West and his team have yet to comment on whether or not that rumor is true, or if he plans to return to Europe on tour in the future. Bustle has reached out to a rep for West, but did not receive a response at the time of publication. Update: Live Nation released the following statement to Bustle:
Earlier: The site claims that the tour would have reportedly included concerts in Paris, the U.K., and Germany, and that West's "people" allegedly contacted Live Nation and let them know it wouldn't be happening — and that this is reportedly a cancelation rather than a decision to postpone.
This news is obviously disappointing for fans who may have been hoping that the rapper would make an appearance near them during this tour, but considering all that West and his family have been through over the last few months, it's not entirely surprising that he'd choose to back out of any extenuating obligations for now.
At the end of November, West was released after a weeklong hospital stay for exhaustion after news that he'd canceled his U.S. tour dates was announced. Since then, West has kept a low profile, save for his unexpected meeting with Donald Trump last week.
Here's hoping West feels up to performing soon. Obviously, his wellbeing comes first, but he has too much talent not to share with his fans!
