Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat

Jermaine Dupri was forced to cancel all but 2 dates of his So So Def 25th Anniversary Tour featuring Xscape, Da Brat, Bow Wow and Anthony Hamilton. JD also pushed back the start of the tour.

Industry insiders are whispering that poor ticket sales and general lack of interest in the tour led to the cancelations. JD also delayed in the start of the tour which was originally scheduled for Oct. 14.

JD blamed the cancellations on scheduling conflicts.

"To all my fans, I know what I’m bout to say is gonna create a very very big [flame emoji] but due to my schedule and creative changes I don’t feel comfortable starting this tour on the 14th, I honestly believe I need another week to get this to where I want it to be," Dupri tweeted on Oct. 3.

According to StraightfromtheA.com, a search of Ticketmaster reveals all tour dates have been canceled except the Atlanta stop (October 21) and Los Angeles (November 2). There are no indications that the dates will be rescheduled in the future.

Fans who did buy tickets to the tour took to social media to complain over the weekend.

"He could have rescheduled the dates for a later time and let the tickets that were already purchased, still be good for the new date," tweeted one disappointed fan.

Another fan tweeted: "It's f--ked up tho [sic] that JD didn't say something about the tour being canceled or nothing. We as supporters should have been informed."

Refunds will be issued at point of purchase.

    2 words....washed up!

  • Coy little wink

    Iggy azalea just cancelled her tour too ? hilarious that bish even tried it

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Fred G sanford

    The Brat should’ve put out a sex tape of her hitting Bow Wow from the back wit a strap on and maybe that would have boosted ticket sales

  • iWasteTime

    SoSo Def
    Iggy
    Nick and Future
    Y'all see who selling and it ain't this ...

  • hi-liter

    I would go. I enjoy going to these type of concerts. I’m apart of this era of music. Market to the right crowd. Young folks ain’t gonna pay to see them. It would be people who are Dupri and Brats age...

  • therealashland

    Not really any one on that roster that people would go see. Hence, non of those people can sell albums, and ain't nobody checking for miss bow wow chile.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Im not going to lie i saw xscape all ready and love them, but don't need to see them again for awhile. Anthony Hamilton I love but not enough to attend this. Da Brat love her but I digress.. Jermaine ? What was his hits again? Bow Wow just can kiss my ass.

  • SweetTEE

    I'll go just to see Jagged Edge..

  • KcoolMuziq

    JD (whom I sat right next to at The Grammy’s one year) sat his daughter on his lap to give me room to sit there. I will FOREVER be grateful to him for that. Plus making my girl Janet happy during her grieving and giving up his position on The Grammy board in protest of Janet being blacklisted. He’s a stand up dude.

    #TEAMJD

  • ALLMINE?

    Duh

  • Kbellaluvvs

    Chile I never knew Anthony Hamilton was on So So Def

  • hi-liter

    As long as they aren’t attempting to charge some astronomical prices to see they asses, then fine. I loved me some Jagged Edge. I would go see them all really. It’s nice to hear music from not to far back in the day.... Fun early 20s.

  • therealashland

    He does seem like a good dude. I just wish he would stop taking up for all of miss bow wow's f#ckery

  • Fire & Ice

    ???

  • KcoolMuziq

    Most gifted child stars have issues when they grow up. Bow Wow is no different. He is super talented .

  • Wreckognize Game

    JE came to NOLA with, Joe and Dru Hill and they ticked me off. They were singing other people's songs and was acting like they were at a backyard BBQ.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Snicker...

  • therealashland

    Talented in what aspect? He is a terrible actor, .. #fact, he can't write decent lyrics on his own #fact. aside from being a cute kid, how was he talented?

  • SweetTEE

    They better not try to charge some high ass price!! tuh, better take this $30 and go head lol

  • SweetTEE

    **deep sigh** never mind, I don't want to go now. My attitude would be terrible :(

  • Judge Mental Will

    Yea he ended up leaving..

  • SweetTEE

    My goodness *clutches pearls*

  • Renee26

    I'd go to this concert... Most friends in my age group would too

  • Renee26

    You got wide hips?? Jk ?

  • SweetTEE

    Is that lil wayne's stole wrapped cross da brat's head or naw?

  • KcoolMuziq

    I worked with him twice and was very impressed by his professionalism and charisma. He was born a star and it was by no accident either.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Still bumping that last album ... love some JE !!!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Who's surprised? Not saying Da Brat isn't accomplished but I wouldn't want to see her or Bow Wow. When she freestyles on the morning show here I press mute. Xscape is cool, but still...

  • therealashland

    Chile, this is where I end the conversation. unless this was 20 plus years ago. 1 he isn't charismatic. He is a spoiled entitled brat, everyone from JD to his mom has talked about his behavior. And gifted in what aspect? Everyone from JD to TI wrote his raps. Any little boy from the hood can dance around and rap if someone wrote it for them. He got lucky. Hence why no one is checking for him now, and why he is having a mental break down every year. Must be hard to have peaked at 12 and fizzled at everything else since.

    I don't know who you are but, if you think bow wow is "gifted" I got a co worker who has a dog that knows her name and comes when called,. that pup must be gifted to right?

  • KcoolMuziq

    ?
    It was his daughters seat.

  • Connie

    Your eyes sharper than a buck fifty.....

  • Connie

    Lol

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I don't know who you are but, if you think bow wow is "gifted" I got a co worker who has a dog that knows her name and comes when called,. that pup must be gifted to right?
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Why though? Lol.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She swear she's the best rapper alive.

  • Monica Govan-Gidron

    I knew this was going to flop!

  • therealashland

    I'm just saying, she's hard pressed on saying how talented and gifted the boy is, im just trying to figure out where. Just seems like there is some low standards, cause honestly miss bow wow doesn't do much , other than beg for attention, again like my co workers pup.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I’m really not surprise because it’s hard for artist when they have been gone so long.

  • Renee26

    Ok... I read it like you had the seat next to them but not enough room ?

  • Coy little wink

    Mental illness is sad ?

  • Coy little wink

    Kcool is a fella ?

  • KcoolMuziq

    He let me sit in his daughters seat.

  • Renee26

    Men have hips too ? it was a joke tho

  • SweetTEE

    And blind as a bat in real life!!!

  • Renee26

    ???

  • Renee26

    When I saw Escap3 I was disappointed...they only did 3 songs but I bet with Kandi with them they could do better without all the red tape stopping them from performing old songs

  • Marlika

    Did he did a SoSo Def reunion tour a few years ago and everyone was there except all the memeber of Xscape. Tiny & Candy refuse to show up. This was before one of the Chris’s died from Kris Kross.??????????

  • ClaireHuxtable

    All good...EXCEPT...he got that skripper pregnant while he was going wit Janet. It broke her heart in two. So she had to go get the Arab man.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Actually Janet & Jd remained friends and was actually broken up by the time MJ passed and when he went and got her face tattooed on his body. But she moved on anyway.

  • Yup, I said it

    I don't even wanna hear her on the morning show. That show could float with just Head Crack, Rock T and Gary. They rest of the cast can go.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    Lol nooooo

  • ClaireHuxtable

    "her face tattooed"
    LOL! I remember that now. Lame move. I'd be sprinting from the guy who tatooed my face on his body after we broke up. What's the next chick supposed to think?
    Unlessss...he got it on his peter. Then I'd know he was reeally serious about getting me back.

  • Yui
  • Wreckognize Game

    I was hot with JE because they sung snippets of their own songs. I just wanted to hear Gots to Be. Dru Hill tore it down and Joe killed it with a live band and all.

  • Latisaj

    I honestly thought about it... Not enough folks from era on the line up... So it was a NO for me...

  • Judge Mental Will

    You right. i saw them at the essence festival so the all was they all was there. i dont wanna see 3. i feel you on thar.

  • dontgetblocked

    Let's break it down. Jermaine cheated on Janet with strippers and is now married to a Becky. DaBrat is a 40-something year old felon still calling herself a brat. Xscape...tired of seeing and hearing about them. Anthony Hamilton? Don't remember him. Bow Wow...is still a LIL Bow Wowing crying bish. Who happens not to be black. No. I didn't buy tickets.

  • Faithz

    Brat is a Beautiful girl.

  • Faithz

    It's hard out there, you have to do Music , and other things to make it any more.

  • imright

    i didnt realize it was a tour, i thought it was one big show featuring SoSo Def artists old and new????? thats what JD should do

  • Nikki

    The Brat is pretty...that’s all I got.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Well here’s the thing imo xscape just finished up a tour nobody is going to pay AGAIN for the same performance the only other person I would pay to see is Anthony nobody really want to see bow wow and da brat ????? Not enough to pay idk just my humble opinion

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Damn I was trying to be nice but you basically said what i thought ???

  • grenadiadrian

    "Over 80 million records sold, and I ain't have to do it with 10 or 11-year olds." -Dr. Dre

    Safe to say Jermaine "Diet Diddy" Dupri is seriously over valuing the longevity/impact of the SoSo Def roster.

    God rest Chris Kelly's soul, but we grew up with and eventually grew out of listening to Kris Kross.

    Xscape had the misfortune of coming out when the likes of En Vogue, SWV, and TLC had the girl group game by the ass.

    Brat lit it up with her first album, went cold on the 2nd, heated up a lil bit (but still had ice chunks in the middle) with Unrestricted in 2000 and then became the thuggin' stud.

    Which brings us to the Mighty Max of hip-hop in Bow Wow. Much like what I said about Kris Kross, his fan base grew up with and grew out of his music, then he hit every struggle possible in trying to forge an identity outside of being the hip-hop Happy Meal heavyweight of 2000-01. Was he TI? Was he Lil' Wayne? Was he Jeezy? Now he's on social media: ALL IN THE VIDEOS, ALL ON THE IG, DUMBASSIN. Who the God's name wants to buy a ticket to see this clown perform?

    Nah. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e5dff3d480fdb4f5234bc9b7a5a59712961b9a37fce974e457a25db2f0cd754e.gif

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Oooohhh yea sure did I forgot about that

  • Li-Wright

    They are D-list performers.

  • dru and neil

    I wouldn’t have minded seeing Xscape and Anthony Hamilton only, but 20 years ago the whole ticket would have been appealing.

  • dru and neil

    Anthony Hamilton, leave this sh*t show behind and hook up with Carl Thomas, Avant and Keke Wyatt. That would be an old school RnB show that sells. I would still love to see them even all these years later.

  • dru and neil

    Were they part of the show? They would be worth seeing yes.

  • MsAmour22

    I purchased a ticket....was really looking forward to it!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Look, how many times do I have to tell y'all that people have to like you, to support you, i.e. spend money? Bow Wow's a nut, Brat bust that chick across the head with a bottle and still refuse to pay the judgment, etc. People only wanted to see Xscape and they did on their tour. No one's interested in this. The wave is over.

    Jagged Edge? Sis what? And then they attached some currency name to the tour. Like bro, we don't get it. Since I wasn't going, IDC.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I would date brat if she would get one cool hairstyle that u could deal with

  • dru and neil

    I think the time has passed for the brat and bow wow. Some music doesn’t really stand the test of time.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    *sings* the thrill is gone, the thrill is gone away

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Diet daddy?

  • Coy little wink

    You like womenz womenz womenz?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yep, but Brat has bad Karma looming over her life. She was a b itch and cracked that chick across her face. Insult to injury, she's filing bankruptcy to keep from paying the lady and hiding money too I bet. Nah, Karma never forgets an address. You will get back in life the energy you put out.

    This was a regional show at best. The timing and energy was right when Xscape did their tour a year ago.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    No but she is super sexy

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    That was hilarious. Like niglet, Janet's a full grown freaky woman of wealth. A tat on your back means nothing to her.

  • Coy little wink

    112, K-ci and jo jo, Donell jones and avant did a tour last year...I went it was meh...

    I think they all need to get jobs at trader Joes

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    LOL right.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Nobody has really been checking for Soso Def in over a decade sooooo NOTHING TO SEE HERE!! Xscape just went on tour. Anthony Hamilton I will pay to see on his solo tour should he ever decide to do so. I don't wanna have to go thru JD, Da Brat and Bow Wow just to get to Anthony. Congrats on the 25th anniversary tho.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    And jagged edge wasn’t part of this tour reunion. Issa no for me dawg

  • grenadiadrian

    "Diet Diddy" a/k/a wannabe P. Diddy.

  • Dun Dilly

    Some things should be left back in the 90's, tho.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Go to bed

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    YESS JE

  • DETROITTOATL

    Welp that sure summed it up.

  • Karen Brady

    ?

  • Karen Brady

    Lol

  • DETROITTOATL

    First all he trying to be like the BadBoy tour...It will not work but I would damn sure pay to see the Diddy Gang again.

  • Wreckognize Game

    ?That's all?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    The tour was minimal. The closest it got to New Orleans was Atlanta ? So yea, what’d they expect?

    Some of you guys are so harsh LOL. I would definitely go see them.

    Maybe JD shout shoot for smaller venues ?????

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I adore her, but he style is R. Kelly-ish. All them rhinestones and du rags.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Mike and Slim from 112 should hook up with Dwayne Wiggins and help him sing Tony Toni Tone songs. Supposedly 112 broke up again and I'm tired of hearing TTT is on tour when it's only him with the guitar and 2 unknowns.

  • dru and neil

    Is K-Ci off the drugs?

  • Coy little wink

    I love Toni Tony tone...but without Raphael saddiq? Hard pass...

    112 looked like they hadn't practiced enough or didn't care it was like watching a talent show...mister was irritated like who are these clowns?

  • Coy little wink

    Girl he was hilarious he stole the show with his antics...so I think not...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Brat bust that chick across the head with a bottle and still refuse to pay the judgment
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^6
    I keep seeing this reported. But I remember a while ago after Wendy Williams reported it, Brat claimed she had already paid the girl. So I guess she just flat out lied on the radio...

  • Wreckognize Game

    That's how Jagged Edge performed.

  • Ang

    I saw JE in their prime and their performance was that way. I like their albums to this day but they never got the performance aspect down.

  • Ms..N

    Lmao!!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Nah Brat bankruptcy claim has that lady listed. It's actually the largest debt in her list of creditors. She never paid that lady off. I can't say what she paid, but on her BK it shows millions of dollars owed.

  • Victoria King

    Well glad my dates are still on for the 21st!

Trust me she got a trunkload of shyt on van. Randy Jackson wife got 20 million. White women incomes goes way up when they divorce rhese wealthy black men.

  • hottlanta

    Yep divorcing a wealthy black man is the white woman's gross national product.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    She will get 75% plus child and alimony supports .

  • hottlanta

    One day these artists will put their ego aside and book worldwide supper and jazz club tours and make a consistent solid bank on small pack venues. Everybody wants to fill a stadium but a stadium is not the only way to successful tour.

  • Ang

    Yes I couldn’t believe it. I was so disappointed.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    The music industry (specifically black genres) made a lot of n****** moves in their attempt to fulfill their quest for market dominance. They screwed themselves when they f****** up with the wrong ppl. ..The ppl who sell their shows, popularize their bs merch/albums and make it seem like the bs the black music genres put out is "cool". Now they're stuck with what the market has seen.. (Beyawnce nappyheaded&tacky, rappers=drug addicts & petty criminals, execs= cracked out, sexual abusers & financial fraud scam artists & a lot of music that ppl dnt want to buy or listen to bc it has so many consistent stories of witchcraft or interest in using mind control subliminal messages to negatively impact listeners..to name a few examples)

    A lot of artists and their music business aspirations should have been left in the 90s but their desperation is so visible now that at least the opportunity to make those artists pay for their fuckery exists bc they were too desperate to retire(or die --')

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Ur so right. Trader joes for all of them so maybe they can learn dignity, humility &,recognize how insignificant they are. Charlotte Russe for some of the female singers/rappers--maybe learn how to dress from their customers

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Did not know about it.. Other than Anthony, I would not care.

    I would have cared in 2008. So I sat here trying to put myself back in 2008 to see how much I could care about the tour. Turns out I didn't care. So when I get some more energy I will imagine myself in 2000 to see if I care then. Stay tuned (shrugged shoulders)

    I saw that Stevie Wonder is coming to the local casino lounge. And was thinking I might like to go. The demographic that vibes with So So Def music aren’t stadium concert goers. They prefer smaller venues. Even Stevie can see that. I will be very surprised if Jay Z and/or Beyonce do another large arena tour again- they shouldn’t.
