Grime artist Stormzy has cancelled his Australian tour dates just one day ahead of Listen Out Festival. He’s the second grime artist to cancel a tour this month, following on from Skepta, who pulled out of his sell-out headline tour just a day before it was scheduled to kick off.
The rapper took to Instagram to make the announcement that he has had to pull out of ALL but one live date for the remainder of 2016, which is fairly alarming. He’s given little information, simply writing “due to reasons out of my control.”
Listen Out also shared the news via Facebook:
