Kanye West Axed From Music Festival Due To Financial Cuts
With the bleak economic outlook expected to take another turn for the worse over the coming months, it appears that even super rich rappers like Kanye West aren’t immune from financial woe, after Yeezy was axed from a music festival in Australia and New Zealand due to financial cuts...
West was due to perform at the ‘Big Day Out’ festival, which spans across three cities in Australia and New Zealand, but organisers have been forced to remove the rapper from the line-up after poor ticket sales meant they couldn’t afford to pay him.
It is likely that Kanye won’t even miss his appearance fee, though, because he is currently playing to sold out audiences across the US on the excellent ‘Watch The Throne’ tour alongside his mentor, Jay-Z.
