Iggy Azalea's Great Escape Tour Rescheduled, Loses Openers

>> Iggy Azalea's spring tour of North America has been rescheduled. The Great Escape Tour was supposed to kick off in April, but due to supposed "tour production delays," the run will now begin on September 18th in San Diego.  In addition, Nick Jonas and Tinashe will no longer be the opening acts for this tour, but the new openers should be announced soon.

>> UPDATE (3/13/15): According to Billboard, Azalea had this to say about the situation in a recent interview with 97.1 AMP Radio : "It is bumped back because I am a psychopath. It is my first arena tour, so it's a big undertaking and I'm doing a lot of the creative direction, which I do for everything," she said. "It's tough when it's your first time working on an arena situation."

>> This postponement comes after Azalea handing over her social media accounts to her team as well as issues with Azealia Banks.  The new list of dates for The Great Escape Tour can be seen below.
