Kanye West Cancels European Leg of Saint Pablo Tour (Report)

Cancellation of shows comes on the heels of rapper’s hospitalization for psychiatric issues in November

Kanye West’s European fans are in for a major disappointment.

Fresh off the heels of his recent psychiatric hospitalization in November, West is cancelling the European leg of his Saint Pablo tour, per TMZ. He had previously cancelled all of his North American tour dates.

Los Angeles police responded to a medical welfare call at about 1:20 p.m. on Nov. 21, and West was hospitalized for his own health and safety. The breakdown was the culmination of a string of bizarre behavior from West in the days leading up to his hospitalization.

West stopped several concerts cold in order to rant about Donald Trump, Beyoncé and Jay Z. Shortly thereafter, it was announced that the remaining dates of his tour had been canceled after a disastrous Sacramento show.

West was more than an hour late for that show, performed only a few songs, then went on a profanity-laced tirade about Beyoncé, Jay Z, Taylor Swift, Drake and Hillary Clinton before dropping the mic and walking off stage.

“Beyoncé, I was hurt, cause I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won [VMA] Video of the Year over me, over ‘Hotline Bling,'” West said, before accusing her of trying to manipulate awards shows and begging her husband to call him. “Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head. Just call me!” he continued. “Talk to me like a man!”
