Iggy Azalea reveals why she postponed her Great Escape tour: 'I'm a psychopath'

Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea has revealed that she cancelled her Great Escape tour and rescheduled it from April to September because she didn't want to rush the process of making sure it was perfect. 

During a new interview with AMP 97.1 radio station, the songstress explained that she didn't have enough time to get the production of the show to the standard she wanted to decided to reschedule all of the dates:

"It is bumped back because I am a psychopath. It's my first arena tour so it's a big undertaking and I'm doing a lot of the creative direction. we're doing a custom stage and custom build. when you're building a stage and things like that, you do it about six months in advance."

"My tour would've been April, we have not started building. That is not six months, that is very tight, and so to get this stage kind of done in time I would be making a lot of sacrifices and cuts and changes and compromises would have to be made to get this thing done in time. So I really considered what do I want to do: keep and honour the tickets and this date for fans but not the show I'd envisioned or kind of promised them, a lesser version of it with maybe not so many people like jumping out of the ceilings and flying all over the place, or do I want to move it and have the absolute best show, the show that I envisioned, and obviously I've chosen to move it."

Her Great Escape north American tour will now launch with a date in San Diego, California on September 18.
