Rick Ross Has Cancelled His 2018 Australian Tour

American rapper Rick Ross (real name William Leonard Roberts II) has cancelled his 2018 Australian tour, which was due to begin next week.

In a statement, tour promoters Frontier Touring and Illusive Presents said, “Due to unforeseen circumstances Illusive Presents & Frontier Touring are disappointed to announce the cancellation of Rick Ross’ Australian and New Zealand September shows.

“We apologise for the inconvenience caused to all patrons and full refunds will be issued through designated ticketing agents.”

Rick Ross was due to perform in Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney as part of his tour. He was last scheduled to perform down under in 2012, but that tour was also cancelled. At the time, a representative cited a contractual dispute.

Ross was discharged from hospital in March this year after allegedly being found unresponsive in his home.
