After returning to the music scene following a four-year-long hiatus, rapper Iggy Azalea has now cancelled her upcoming “Bad Girls Tour.”

Last month, the rapper revealed the tour with special guest CupcakKe, set to kick-off October 27 in Florida. The trek was announced in support of her new EP, Survive The Summer, which just dropped this past August. However, Azalea took to Twitter yesterday, calling off the tour.

Although she didn’t explain exact reasons, she noted that “the choice was out of my hands and not my call to make.”

The tour was supposed to hit cities across the country like Washington, D.C., Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Boston, and Phoenix before wrapping-up in Houston, Texas in December.

Ticketmaster released a statement on their site stating “This event has been canceled. Refunds at Point of Purchase only. Internet & Phone orders will automatically be canceled & refunded.”  Currently, Live Nation cancelled all dates but four – Minneapolis, St. Louis, Salt Lake City, and Hollywood, CA – but it is assumed that these cities’ shows will be cancelled as well.

This isn’t Azalea’s first time cancelling a tour after a comeback; back in 2014, she announced a world tour in support of a forthcoming album, but in 2015, the tour was called-off. Originally, she said the cancellation was due to a “creative change of heart,” but told Billboard that she wasn’t mentally ready for a tour after a non-stop year releasing music and touring in support of her debut, The New Classic.

Her promised sophomore album was never released, but is expected next year. Survive The Summer features the hit track “Kream” featuring Tyga.

While some fans were not surprised with the cancellation, others were upset that the tour was called-off, especially since meet and greet opportunities were available. Despite the downfalls, her loyal fanbase is patiently waiting for the star to return to the stage.
