Kanye West Cancels Plans to Bring Saint Pablo Tour to Europe
His European tour dates were put on hold after West was hospitalized at the UCLA Medical Center in November due to ongoing health problems. However, TMZ reports that West’s team contacted Live Nation, the tour’s promoter, and informed them that the dates in Europe are canceled. These concerts would have taken place in Paris, the U.K. and Germany in 2017. Apparently, the cancellation of these shows did not pose any major problems because the dates weren’t set and tickets weren’t sold.
West allegedly has an insurance policy that reimburses him for any lost profits or expenses due to cancellations that result from a medical condition. The artist has not issued a personal statement on the cancellation, but a source close to the situation tells Billboard, “The tour was never confirmed — so there was nothing to cancel.” Live Nation also confirms, “Kanye West’s SAINT PABLO TOUR never had a confirmed European leg. As such, there were no dates to cancel.”
West previously canceled the remaining 21 Saint Pablo Tour dates on Nov. 21 after his show in Sacramento in which he spoke out against Beyoncé, Jay Z and Hillary Clinton. On the same day, he was admitted to the hospital after experiencing an episode of what his physician called “temporary psychosis.”
“He pushed himself too much,” a source told Entertainment Tonight after West was hospitalized. “[Kim Kardashian’s] Paris incident unsettled everyone, [but it] unsettled him the most. He had this anxiety that everyone around him was trying to get him.”
“He had severe paranoia. It was over nothing that was tangible or real,” the source added. “He was thinking that people were out to kill him, out to break him and Kim up. It was Kanye vs. the whole world.”
