Tinashe, Nick Jonas Drop Iggy Azalea’s ‘The Great Escape’ Tour Following Delay

After rescheduling her upcoming The Great Escape Tour "due to tour production delays," Iggy Azalea will have to find new opening acts. Singers Tinashe and Nick Jonas will not join the Australian rapper on the postponed dates.

Various rumors were circulating that the trek was going to be canned because of sales and conflict between her and management, but according to Azalea’s label, Def Jam Recordings, the rescheduling was done "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," states the label in a press release.

"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," wrote Iggy’s handlers on Twitter.

The tour is now set to kick off this fall with the start date set for September 18 in San Diego, Calif.

New opening acts for the rescheduled tour will be announced shortly.
