Yesterday, Iggy Azalea announced that she’d be pushing back the dates of her Great Escape tour a few months due to “tour production delays.” Her scheduled openers, Nick Jonas and Tinashe, have announced that they will move forward with separate solo runs in her absence.
Jonas will embark on a string of headlining dates this spring, while Tinashe will go on tour this summer.
While no dates have been confirmed yet, a Jonas representative told Billboard yesterday that the tour will start after Jonas hosts the Kids’ Choice Awards on March 28.
Tinashe announced her new tour on Twitter: “Unfortunately I won’t be participating in the Great Escape Tour, but I would never disappoint – I WILL be on tour THIS summer! DETAILS SOON!”[tweet https://twitter.com/tinashe/status/575419630245789697]
Meanwhile, Azalea’s Great Escape tour will now start off Sept. 18, beginning in San Diego. A representative for Def Jam told Billboard, “To accommodate for creative team availability and tour productions, it was determined that the tour will not be ready this spring.”
