Kanye cancels rest of Saint Pablo tour; Ticketmaster offers refunds

Kanye West has canceled the rest of his Saint Pablo Tour after two controversial concerts, according to source familiar with the situation but unauthorized to speak publicly.

Tickets for the canceled shows will be fully refunded at the point of sale.

The 39-year-old rapper was due to play Fresno, Calif., on Tuesday, with 20 more concerts scheduled through the end of the year in major cities including Orlando, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Boston. The tour was set to end with a two-night stint at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Dec. 30 and 31.

West raised eyebrows  Thursday night at his show in San Jose, Calif., when he told concertgoers that he "would've voted for Trump." He continued to say that he was "glad Trump inspired racists to reveal themselves" and that he was still considering a presidential run for 2020, which he famously announced during last year's MTV Video Music Awards.

He fanned the flames Saturday night with his stop in Sacramento, when he ranted onstage about Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Jay Z, criticized Hillary Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg, and walked off after 30 minutes.

Captured on video by concert goers, West told the audience he heard Beyoncé refused to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards unless she won Video of the Year over him, and he also urged her husband Jay Z to call him.

West said he was putting his life and career at risk by talking to the fans in the audience "like this." West's representative did not immediately respond to request for comment.

She also tweeted he couldn't have been on stage more than 30 minutes. This follows a show in San Jose last Thursday where West showered concert goers with political rants in between songs.

The Golden 1 Center tweeted just after midnight they'll have more information for fans who are asking for a refund soon.
