Kid Cudi cancels upcoming tour, releases new track instead

Kid Cudi has upset fans by announcing via Twitter that the 16-city ‘Especial’ tour will not be going ahead. This news comes less than a month after the tour’s announcement, with Cudi citing production troubles and personal issues as the reasoning behind its cancellation.

“By now I’m sure all of you have heard but for those who haven’t I’ve decided to cancel my tour,” he wrote. “Things weren’t together production wise and I need a bit to make some changes.”

“I got a lot I’m dealing with at this time in my personal life too and in order for the shows to be the best experience possible as well as keeping my sanity intact, I need to regroup”.

Cudi also thanked the fans that had attended his Denver show on November 30th. The show was held at the Fillmore Auditorium, being the first, and now only stop of the tour. Despite this bad news, the artist made promises to reschedule the tour for ‘the top of the year’, all tickets will be honoured for next years shows.

Making up for the sudden cancellation, Cudi also dropped his newest track Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven, on SoundCloud. Produced by himself along with Plain Pat, the guitar-driven track signals a possible change in direction for Cudi’s music. It’s sound is not so exciting as it is ominous, but there are some strong ideas here.

Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven is the titular track for the upcoming two-disc album which is scheduled for release tomorrow. The album will be the follow-up from Satellite Flight: The Journey To Mother Moon, which was released early last year.
