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.
