Iggy Azalea Explains Great Escape Tour Delay
. Iggy Azalea gave an interview last week where she offered an explanation for the reasons behind her decision to postpone her Great Escape tour from this spring until next fall.
Azalea spoke with Los Angeles radio station 97.1 AMP and explained that the tour was postponed due to wanting to deliver a bigger experience to concert goers, in part due to low record sales.
"We're doing a custom stage and a custom build. When you're building a stage and things like that it takes about six months in advance," she said. "My tour would have been April but we have not started building.
"So to get this stage built in time I would be making a lot of sacrifices and cuts and changes. Compromises would have had to be made to get this thing done in time."
Azalea also explained her need to have a bigger show, "Nowadays with record sales the way it is, it's our bread and butter. I don't want to have one arena tour that people were like, 'It was alright, but I don't want to go back.' That's not the standard I'm trying to set. I want to raise the bar."
