According to Live Nation, the tour ran into some “unforeseen circumstances” that led to its unfortunate cancellation. The tour had originally been set to run for five-weeks starting Oct 27 and conclude by December.
CupcakKe, who announced her departure from the tour first (Oct.2) via Twitter noted that she would be leaving due to a change in previously arranged plans. She later stated her pay had been cut by $300,000 dollars.

The 21-year-old provocateur maintained that the “Fancy” rapper should not be held responsible for the cancellation.
Oh sis this has nothing to do with me , or iggy really …. it’s just the people that put the tour together was a unorganized and keep changing the plans that was in the contract so I just called out …. so once again you can grab a refund or go see the lady’s show out 😘 https://t.co/W4IArNQC6S

Iggy confirmed the cancellation on Twitter (Oct.7), saying she was “I was really excited for this tour… and I’m genuinely disappointed it can’t happen this year,” and that the cancellation was out of her hands.
