Iggy Azalea fans were dealt one disappointment when her show at Target Center in April was postponed till October 1, and now they've been dealt another.

The Australian rapper announced on Twitter that her Great Escape Tour has been canceled, with the Daily Mirror reporting that those who bought tickets had been informed by email and will be able to get refunds.

According to the Star Tribune, the "Fancy" singer "didn't bother with an excuse this time," with the email sent to ticket holders giving no reason for the cancellation. The postponement earlier this year was blamed on "production delays."

"It is bumped back because I am a psychopath," she told a radio station after the initial postponement, according to Billboard. "It is my first arena tour, so it's a big undertaking and I'm doing a lot of the creative direction, which I do for everything."

The email did say that a new tour was being planned for 2016 around the release of her next album, meaning a long wait for any Minnesotan fans who had hoped to see her play the downtown Minneapolis arena.

The 24-year-old recently won three Billboard Awards, but was the subject of an online petition t0 have her "Best Song" award for "Fancy" taken away because some argued it fell outside of the eligibility period, CBS News reports.
