Jay-Z Cancels Remaining 2009 'The BP3' Tour Dates
As seen on Live Daily
Jay-Z has scrapped the remainder of his 2009 tour dates behind his latest studio set, "The Blueprint 3," citing conflicts in scheduling.
The hip-hop star's upcoming shows in Lubbock, TX (11/17); Albuquerque, NM (11/19) and El Paso, TX (11/20), have all been canceled due to an "unforeseen scheduling conflict," according to concert promoter Live Nation. Refunds for the shows will be made available immediately at the point of purchase.
Jay-Z--whose real name is Shawn Carter--earlier moved a Nov. 22 show in Austin, TX, up to Nov. 10 in order to make a live appearance at the 2009 American Music Awards, which are scheduled to take place in Los Angeles on the same day as the original Austin date.
The early 2010 leg of the performer's "BP3" tour continues to gather steam, however, with a handful of fresh dates recently added to an already full-sized schedule. The tour is currently set to kick off Feb. 20 in Sunrise, FL, and will hit 17 cities through late March. Dates are below.
