On Sunday night, after a truly effed-up weekend in the spotlight (more on that in a sec), Kanye West canceled a Los Angeles makeup concert just three hours before it was set to begin. (Then posted 99 fashion shots on Instagram.) Shortly after, L.A. Times reporter Gerrick D. Kennedy tweeted that a source informed him West told the Saint Pablo Tour crew the rest of the dates would be canceled.

E! News followed up with a statement from West's rep: "The remaining dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been canceled. Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase."

The next scheduled Saint Pablo Tour date was Tuesday, Nov. 22 in Fresno, Calif. After that, the tour was scheduled to run 20 more dates, straight through Dec. 31 in Brooklyn. All the dates were part of a surprise extension announced in mid-October. The floating-stage–centric jaunt kicked off on Aug. 25 in Indianapolis.

In an exhaustive monologue on Thursday night, Kanye West told Saint Pablo Tour attendees in San Jose that he did not vote, but would've gone for Donald Trump, and that black people need to "stop focusing on racism." On Saturday, his show headed to Sacramento, where a similarly extensive speech called out BeyoncéJay Z and Mark Zuckerberg; Kanye proclaimed he was "on my Trump shit tonight," and ended the concert after three songs.
