Those looking forward to seeing Pitbull and Ke$ha in Australia might have to take a rain check on the shows because it looks like the plug has been pulled.
The two radio mainstays had been scheduled to have a tour in Australia that was scheduled to begin on October 30; now it has surfaced that the tour has been completely scrapped a little over two weeks from when it was supposed to begin.
The show was coined as the year’s “hottest double-act,” but it looks like the reception was a little on the luke-warm side of things. The dates for the “Pitbull & Ke$ha – Live In Australia” tour included Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena (Nov. 1), Adelaide Entertainment Centre (Nov. 3), Perth Arena (Nov. 5) and wrap-up at Sydney’s Allphones Arena (Nov. 8).
The promoters for the event, Dainty Group, confirmed the run was off, but the official reason for it has yet to be released. Some are starting to guess that it might have to do with the fact that ticket sales for the show had been mediocre at best.
Pitbull did take to his Facebook page to announce the cancellation, but like everyone else, has not given a definite answer for the cancellation. The rapper said the following on the social media site, “Regrettably the Promoter is cancelling the Australian Tour, refunds will be available at point of purchase. We hope to return to Australia in the not too distant future.”
Just last week, the label-mates released a joint song titled, “Timber” which currently has a music video in progress, at least according to Ke$ha’s Instagram pictures.
