Just weeks after she released a hit single with Britney Spears to great acclaim, Mullumbimby-born rap sensation Iggy Azalea has cancelled her upcoming US tour.

People with tickets to one of Azalea’s gigs received an email advising them of the sudden cancellation.

‘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,’ the statement read.

The news was confirmed on Saturday by Iggy herself, who tweeted, ‘As u may know, the tour is cancelled. I’m so sad and sorry to let my fans down…we’ll be back out on the road when the next album is done.’

According to Billboard magazine, the cancellation follows an earlier postponement of the gigs, which were due to begin on September 18.

At that time, Iggy told a US radio station she had rescheduled because she was ‘a psychopath’.

‘It is my first arena tour, so it’s a big undertaking and I’m doing a lot of the creative direction, which I do for everything,’ she told the station in March. ‘It’s tough when it’s your first time working on an arena situation.’
