Kanye West Cancels ‘Saint Pablo’ Tour Ahead of Boston Show
The latest drama in the life of Kanye West means bad news for local fans of the rapper.
The hip-hop star, fashion mogul, and possible 2020 presidential candidate has canceled the remaining dates on his “Saint Pablo” tour, including the December 28 show at the TD Garden in Boston. According to CNN, Live Nation will offer full refunds for tickets to the now canceled performances.
The abrupt cancellations come days after West made headlines for telling a crowd in San Jose that he would’ve voted for President-elect Donald Trump if he had actually cast a ballot in the 2016 election. He went on to blast Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, as well as Jay Z and Beyoncé during a controversial rant on Saturday before cutting a concert short in Sacramento.
Although Bay State fans won’t get to see Yeezy this holiday season, the rapper did perform a lengthy show in Boston this past September. West also opened a temporary pop-up shop on Boylston Street and other locations around the country in August.
