Kanye cancels US dates
Kanye West has cancelled the remaining 21 shows on his current US concert tour: “The remaining dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been cancelled,” said a spokesperson for concert promoter Live Nation. “Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase.” The cancellation comes in the wake of a series of recent rants in which West declared himself a Donald Trump supporter and criticised a long list of celebrities including Jay Z, Beyoncé, Hillary Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg. West reportedly abandoned a Sacramento performance at the weekend after he had performed just three songs. Press reports say he is suffering from exhaustion but the BBC reported that West has been taken to hospital following an emergency services call. A police spokesperson told the BBC they had received a "disturbance call" on Monday afternoon, but did not name the singer. NBC News said officers had been responding to a "medical welfare call" and the decision to hospitalise West was for his own health and safety, citing "multiple authorities familiar with the case".
