Iggy Azalea Cancels 'The Great Escape' Tour/ Plans To Tour In 2016 When New Record Is Released?
I figure many just didn't see it for Iggy after all.
After a recent pushback due to 'Production Delays' it seems Iggy Azalea is finally just canceling her tour period. Ticket holders recieved emails saying, "The Iggy Azalea Great Escape Tour scheduled for this fall has been cancelled and refunds are available at point of purchase. There will be a new tour planned around Iggy‘s new record to be released in 2016 and we apologize for any inconvenience."
Though no official statement has been released as to why of the cancellation, I'm sure it's for the obvious reasons, such as low ticket sales. I'm sure many just weren't buying, and of course this wouldn't have been a good look for Iggy. It wasn't best that Iggy Azalea went on tour anyway. Most artist usually start touring, once they're around their third album. At least, that was the original way for some. Many do usually tour, on their first album now, but I, myself am not sure of how that works, because I know most artist usually like to perform their hits, and around your first album, you occasionally only have at least one hit.
The only hit Iggy really has going for her is 'Fancy' and 'Black Widow.' Other than pushbacks, the tour went quickly downhill months ago, when Tinashe and Nick Jonas removed themselves as opening acts.
I'm guessing the hype just got to her (about touring), but I guess it would be best to tour, around the period that you have a new album released. That way, you still have buzz going for you as you begin the stages of touring. I'm hoping this new project once again brings a hit for Iggy, so it'll have a positive impact on the ticket sales.
