Azealia Banks cancels Summer festival appearances | Music News


Azealia Banks has had to deliver some disappointing news for her European fans today. Following the reorganisation of her 1991 EP release and a switch in management (she is now under the guise of Lady Gaga‘s manager, Troy Carter), Ms. Banks has pulled out of a number of UK and European Summer festival appearances.

In an interview with NME, her management detailed that the Harlem femcee will still play Reading and Leeds Festivals and BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend, but has been forced to cancel the rest of her UK dates due to “recording commitments”. Her October UK headline tour will still go ahead as scheduled.

Azealia elaborated via Twitter, explaining: “They were all prematurely booked by my old management without any consideration for me and the album I need to finish!”

The album she is referring to is Broke With Expensive Taste, her debut LP which is expected out in September on Interscope Records.

See below for her condensed tour schedule.
