Kanye West cancels rest of Saint Pablo tour

BANG Showbiz

KANYE West has cancelled the rest of his Saint Pablo tour.

The 'Only One' hitmaker has decided to pull the plug on a series of concerts he was due to play across North America this month and into December.

Fans will be able to have their tickets "fully refunded at point of purchase", his spokesperson has confirmed.

The 39-year-old singer has yet to publicly comment on the premature ending to his tour but sources claim he axed the remaining dates because of "exhaustion".

An insider told People magazine: "He's just exhausted. He's been working around the clock on fashion design, both on his own line and the Adidas line.

"He's a notorious workaholic, so balancing both that work - which is extremely important to him - and the rigors of the tour every night, it really wore him out. I'm sure Kim and his family played a part in the decision [to cancel the tour]. He's incredibly devoted to his family."

The news comes only hours after Kanye cancelled his show at The Forum in Los Angeles on Sunday (20.11.16) just a few hours before he was expected to go on stage.

A message on The Forum's Twitter page read: "Tonight's show has been cancelled. Refund at point of purchase (sic)"

And the 'Famous' hitmaker also turned up over an hour and a half late to his gig on Saturday (19.11.16) before fleeing the stage after making a dig at Jay Z.

In a clip taken by a fan at the show, he said: "Jay Z I know you got killas. Please don't send them at my head. If you keep following old models, your ass is going to get Hillary Clinton'd. Don't go dissing Beyonce, she's great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great."
