Pitbull and Ke$ha have cancelled a scheduled joint tour of Australia.

Billed by promoters initially as this year's "hottest double-act", the two pop acts were due to play five dates in Australia later this month and early next month.

Pitbull used his Facebook page to announce the news. Although he failed to give a reason for cancllation, Billboard report that ticket sales for the stretch are understood to have been "soft".

"Regrettably the Promoter is cancelling the Australian Tour," Pitbull wrote. "Refunds will be available at point of purchase. We hope to return to Australia in the not too distant future."

Pitbull released his last album 'Global Warming' in 2012. His eighth studio album 'Meltdown' is due for release in 2014. Ke$ha released her second album 'Warrior' in 2012. It was the follow-up to her 2010 LP 'Animal'. The pair recently released a single together, titled 'Timber'.
