T-Pain Cancels Tour Due to Low Ticket Sales
T-Pain is being completely honest about why he's shutting down his own tour.
In a video he uploaded to Instagram TV on Sunday (Oct. 20), the T-Wayne rapper decided to be real and upfront about why he pulled the plug on his upcoming 1UP DLC Tour. Instead of lying to his fanbase, Pain admitted that this year's round of shows didn't sell as many tickets as his previous tour.
"I was advised to lie about this and say that I needed some time, or I needed some alone time or me time or some shit like that," he said. "We fucked up. I'm gonna keep it real with y'all. Most artists lie. Whenever concerts get canceled or tours get canceled, it's for low ticket sales."
T-Pain, who recently took a break from music to avoid permanent vocal damage, continued the blunt explanation by revealing that he wasn't as involved with the planning of the tour as he should've been. He also admits that the production "went missing" and that his team apparently cut corners where they shouldn't have. With only a little over a week left before the tour kicked off in Philadelphia, Pain decided to spare his fans' time and canceled the entire run of shows.
"I thought since the first 1UP Tour went well and sold out every city, it should be good," he said. "Having said that, I'm gonna take it upon myself to cancel [the tour]. It just would have been a bad look for me and it wouldn't have been entertaining for y'all."
