The â€œFame Killsâ€ tour was scheduled to begin on November 10, 2009, in Phoenix, and was set to run through January. Reports as to why the tour was cancelled range from poor ticket salesÂ to creative differences with the artists.
Westâ€™s recent incident at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 13, 2009, may have also been a factor. He went onstage during Taylor Swiftâ€™s acceptance speech for Best Female Video, stating that Beyonce had the best video of the year. West received a lot of backlash for interrupting Swift, and may have lost some fans in the process.
