*Word on the street is that most of the cities and dates for the So So Def 25th reunion tour have been canceled and people are getting emails letting them know that full refunds will be issued.

According to sandrarose.com, Jermaine Dupri was forced to cancel all but 2 dates of the tour featuring Xscape, Da Brat, Bow Wow and Anthony Hamilton. JD also pushed back the start of the tour, which was originally scheduled for Oct. 14.

Industry insiders are whispering that poor ticket sales led to the cancellations.

“To all my fans, I know what I’m bout to say is gonna create a very very big [flame emoji] but due to my schedule and creative changes I don’t feel comfortable starting this tour on the 14th, I honestly believe I need another week to get this to where I want it to be,” Dupri tweeted on Oct. 3.

Fans who purchased tickets to the tour took to social media to complain over the weekend.

“He could have rescheduled the dates for a later time and let the tickets that were already purchased, still be good for the new date,” tweeted one disappointed fan.

Another fan tweeted: “It’s f–ked up tho [sic] that JD didn’t say something about the tour being canceled or nothing. We as supporters should have been informed.”

Refunds will reportedly be issued at the point of purchase. There are no indications that the dates will be rescheduled in the future.
