K. Michelle cancels U.S. tour with Azealia Banks

R&B singer K. Michelle has canceled her upcoming U.S. tour with rapper Azealia Banks in a bid to avoid overworking herself with her multiple projects.

The duo was slated to hit the road this autumn (15), but K. Michelle took to Instagram.com on Thursday (30Jul15) to share the disappointing news with fans.


She wrote, "To say I am crushed is an understatement. I try my best to push myself over the limit and if you don't listen to your body it will make you listen. While currently filming numerous television shows, readying my businesses and working on my new album, I simply cannot overexert myself anymore than I already am. So it is with a broken heart, I have to postpone the tour with me and @AzealiaBanks at this time.


"Before the negativity and assumptions from naysayers... begins, I'd like for everyone to know the truth. First, there is absolutely no drama between me and Azealia. We have a mutual respect for each other as women and artists. I can't wait to get in the studio with her and for you all to hear what she's been working on... Secondly, it wasn't low ticket sales. Due to such an overwhelming response with this tour there have been conversations about adding a second show in various cities... All tickets that have already been purchased will be refunded and I'll see you guys at the top next year! New album. New tour."


Azealia also took to Twitter to share her own disappointment with her fans, writing, "I just got an email from @kmichelle team and she is unfortunately unavailable this fall so she is canceling our tour.


"Unfortunate news as this was my first U.S. tour. But my team will work on an alternative plan to try and keep some of the dates in order! New Tour dates will be up soon!"
