The It’s Only us tour from Lil Baby is scheduled to get underway this month, but it just got shorter as ten dates were cancelled with no explanation. The news was conveyed on Friday via an Instagram post from the rapper, which showed the touring plan, with multiple shows that had initially been announced no longer there.

Seven of the first 15 stops on the tour have been cancelled, while two new shows were announced for later in August.

According to Ticketmaster, shows in Phoenix (August 1), Sacramento (August 9), Salt Lake City (August 14), Denver (August 15), Pittsburgh (Sept. 5), Indianapolis (Sept. 6) and Louisville (Sept. 8) have been cancelled, with no information available on why. A note on the event pages reads, “Unfortunately, the Event Organizer has had to cancel your event. No action is required to obtain a refund.” Shows in San Diego (August 2), Las Vegas (August 4), and Minneapolis (August 19) are also showing as cancelled on AXS, which is the primary box office vendor for those dates.

At the same time, two new dates on the tour have been announced – on August 29 and 30 in Philadelphia and New York, respectively.

Fan reaction for those who found their shows cancelled was understandably negative, with many speculating that poor ticket sales are the cause for the cancellations, due in large part to the high ticket prices being charged.


If that is the case, it is far from the first tour to see major issues in the sale of tickets driven by the ever-increasing prices of tickets to live shows – even for some of the biggest names on tour. Bruce Springsteen’s tour saw one Tulsa show have its prices collapse, and it looks as if upcoming shows are struggling too. Even Beyoncé has cancelled one show and postponed two others on her North American leg of the Renaissance World Tour, with many speculating that sales slumps over surging ticket prices are to blame.

The updated touring schedule for Lil Baby is included below, as are links to ticket marketplaces, where fans shopping for tickets can likely expect to find better deals if rumors of sales being poor are accurate.
