Lil Baby cancels 10 shows from arena tour lineup

NEW YORK: American rapper Lil Baby has removed 10 cities from the original 32-stop lineup in his upcoming highly-anticipated It’s Only Us tour.

Australian rapper The Kid LAROI has also been pulled from the tour, while other artists including GloRilla, Gloss Up, Rylo Rodriguez, and Hunxho are still set to perform as planned.

The nationwide arena tour, produced by AG Entertainment Touring and Mammoth, will no longer include Phoenix, San Diego, Las Vegas, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, Denver, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and Louisville, all of which were part of the initial tour schedule announced earlier in the year.

Meanwhile, Lil Baby updated the tour schedule on Instagram, adding two new dates in Philadelphia on August 29 and New York City on August 30. He has not offered any reasons for the cancellations, leaving fans disappointed and voicing their frustration in the comments section.

According to the international media, no official statement has been made so far by the representatives of Lil Baby, the It’s Only Us tour, and LAROI.

The media reports said that the ticket sales charts on Ticketmaster indicated that venues for some of the pre-existing dates, such as Memphis (September 7 at FedExForum) and Seattle (August 12 at Climate Pledge Arena), appeared to have sold less than half of the available seats. Whereas, the strongest sales have been observed in Los Angeles, where a majority of seats, excluding resale tickets, have already been filled.

Lil Baby’s popularity has skyrocketed over the last five years, largely due to the success of his pandemic-era release My Turn, which spent five weeks at No. 1, achieved quadruple-platinum certification, and became the most consumed album of 2020.

Although his solo follow-up album, It’s Only Me, didn’t produce the same number of hit singles, but still debuted at No. 1 in Billboard last fall and received platinum certification.

The It’s Only Us tour will kick off on July 26 at the Toyota Center in Houston and is scheduled to conclude on September 22 at the FLA Live Arena in Fort Lauderdale.
