Uh Oh! Iggy Azalea Postpones Tour, Nick Jonas And Tinashe Pull Out!
The Aussie rapper's record label Def Jam have confirmed that 'artistic concerns' are to blame for the delay...
Iggy Azalea has been forced to postpone The Great Escape tour until the autumn.
Her record label Def Jam confirmed the news in a statement, revealing that the jaunt will not go ahead this spring because of artistic concerns.
A spokesperson told Billboard: "To accommodate for creative team availability and tour productions, it was determined that the tour will not be ready this spring.
"It's important to Iggy that she delivers the show she envisaged to share with her fans and that requires more time in development."
Iggz HQ: The tour getting pushed back only means that it'll be way more amazing than it would've been in April. Good things take time.

A rep for the Fancy rapper also went on to deny claims that a conflict between Azalea and her management led to the tour being delayed.
The Great Escape Tour will now kick start its North American leg on Friday, September 18 in San Diego, CA, and will wrap on Tuesday, October 27 in Glendale, AZ.
Unfortunately I'm not able to join the rescheduled Great Escape Tour, but you will still get to see me this spring, details coming!
Support act Nick Jonas has since confirmed he's been forced to pull out of the dates, stating on Twitter: "Unfortunately I’m not able to join the rescheduled Great Escape Tour, but you will still get to see me this spring, details coming!"
Fellow Iggy opener Tinashe has also announced that she will also not be available when the shows start up again, writing: "Unfortunately I won't be participating in the Great Escape Tour, but I would never disappoint - I WILL be on tour THIS summer! DETAILS SOON!"
