Kanye West cancels tour, including Atlanta concert


Kanye West has canceled the remaining 21 dates of his Saint Pablo Tour, which included a Dec. 8 show at Philips Arena.

No reason was given for the cancellation. Refunds will be provided at point of purchase. Tickets purchased online and via telephone will be automatically refunded. Questions may be directed to 404-878-3800.

West played a sold-out show at Philips in September and added an encore date in October.

It’s been an erratic week for the rapper , who abruptly canceled his Sunday night performance at the Los Angeles Forum (itself a makeup show). On Saturday, West ended a concert in Sacramento after 30 minutes. At that show, he ranted about Jay Z, Beyonce, Hillary Clinton, Google and Mark Zuckerberg.
