You really aren't going to believe this. Quite funny though...
The 'HIP HOP DON’T STOP' tour featuring MISSY ELLIOTT
and KELIS has been cancelled as there are not adequate buses to accommodate MISSY's touring entourage.
The tour would have hit the UK tomorrow (June 19), but due to the circumstances and various other production issues the British leg of the tour will now not take place.
In an official statement, a hold-up with part of Missy's set and equipment has also been blamed for the cancellation.
The statement reads: "Missy Elliott is disappointed that she will not able to perform in these cities and looks forward to coming back and performing for her fans in the future."
The shows booked for Amsterdam on June 26 and Paris on June 27 will still go ahead, as the press release explains that "special circumstances" have been arranged for these performances.
