Kanye West has officially pulled the plug on the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour, including a Dec. 22 concert at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

"The remaining dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been canceled. Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase,” a tour rep announced on Monday.

The upcoming Palace show was a make-up from an Oct. 6 concert that was postponed in the wake of the Paris robbery of West’s wife, Kim Kardashian.

The Saint Pablo Tour played Joe Louis Arena on Sept. 28 and went off without a hitch.

West’s tour derailed over the weekend, when the rapper abruptly cut a show after performing only three songs and angrily calling out Beyonce and Jay Z. He compared himself to Donald Trump and then stormed off stage, throwing his microphone to the ground.

A few days earlier, at a show in San Jose, Calif., West said he didn’t vote in the presidential election, but if he would have, he would have voted for Trump, expressing admiration for the president-elect’s ability to stir the conversation. In the same speech, West reiterated his plans to run for president in 2020.
