Lady GaGa and Kanye West's first joint tour has been called off. Refunds are available at the point of purchase with tickets purchased online and via phone going to be refunded automatically, Live Nation announced.
The cancellation came hot on the heels of negative publicity gained by Kanye following his infamous interruption over Taylor Swift's Best Female Video acceptance speech at 2009 MTV VMAs. However, no explanation is shared by the tour promoter regarding the cancellation.
Lady GaGa and Kanye West were supposed to kick off their roadshow on November 10 at US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona and continue to hit the road until January next year. Before the "Fame Kills Starring Kanye West and Lady GaGa" was scrapped, a provocative promo video for the gig has also been outed in September.
Most recently, Lady GaGa even revealed storyline of the tour on an interview. "The storyline is that Kanye is on one end of the stage and I'm on the other, and the whole show, we are trying to get to where each other is," she explained without any hint about the cancellation.
"I want something that he has, which is the fame, and he wants something that I have, which is home, and my humble beginnings," the dance queen continued. "So we battle each other throughout the entire performance to steal each other's spaces. So I'm essentially on a quest to kill Kanye West to steal his fame."
