Oh Wow: The Kanye West/Lady GaGa “Fame Kills” Tour Is D.O.A.

Holy crap, turns out the rumors about the Kanye West / Lady GaGa arena tour being off were true; Live Nation has announced that the tour’s been canceled, and that refunds will be issued. (Well, you got this one, MediaTakeOut.) More to come, I’m sure… [ABC / Earlier; HT: AV Club]

    Fame Kills tour. Fame kills… tour? Yes, this will be the music blog headline of choice tonight.

    I’m more surprised that MTO got something right than the Tour being cancelled. It’s felt doomed for a while.

    I always suspected Kanye would immolate his own career eventually.

    This wasn’t exactly how I thought it’d go down (make entire country, including first black president, hate you because you thought you were being chivalrous over some lady’s denied award), but I guess he always has to be original.

    AV club comment made me LOL:

    “Kanye I respect you and I’m gonna let you quit but Michael Jackson had one of the biggest cancelled tours of all time.”

    @ObtuseIntolerant: Hey! Are you going to see the Jonas Brothers in Norfolk? I can’t talk anyone I know into going…

  • Halfwit

    Just as a heads up… you’ve been cited by cited as the “via” source by Pitchfork.

    CNN headline: “Kanye West’s ‘Fame Kills’ tour meets swift end.”

    Ha!

    I’m pretty sure we can blame Kanye for Chicago not getting the 2016 Olympics, too.

    @chachwitablog: Something tells me that there were other factors at play

  • chachwitablog

    @Maura: aw way to be a downer! true, though. I’d just LIKE to blame Kanye for this.
