Lil Baby’s ‘It’s Only Us’ tour kicks off in Texas next week, but already the Atlanta native has removed ten cities from the original 32-show lineup.

Although Lil Baby’s highly-anticipated “It’s Only Us” tour starts next week in Texas, ten cities have already been removed from the original 32-show lineup without explanation. The Kid LAROI has also been removed as a supporting act, but GloRilla, Gloss Up, Rylo Rodriguez, and Hunxho remain listed.

The rapper’s nationwide arena tour will no longer be stopping in Denver, Las Vegas, Louisville, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, and San Diego. Tickets for those dates went on general sale on April 13, and ticketholders will not need to do anything additional to receive their refunds.

Lil Baby posted an updated tour schedule to Instagram last week with an additional two dates in Philadelphia on August 29 and New York City on August 30 — though the post did not provide a reason or acknowledge the canceled dates beyond their absence.

“Find it very weird that you would cancel the Sacramento concert and not (give) us a reason — you need to fix this now,” wrote one fan, while another lamented, “You really kicked Minnesota off, but you going to Wisconsin?”

Looking at the ticket sales charts on Ticketmaster, venues for dates like Memphis on September 7 and Seattle on August 12 appear to have sold less than half the available tickets, while the most substantial sales come from cities like Los Angeles, where most seats have already been filled.

Lil Baby’s pandemic-era release, “My Turn,” helped propel the rapper as one of the biggest breakout stars in the last five years. His solo follow-up album, It’s Only Me, debuted at No.1 last fall but didn’t generate a similar stream of hit singles.

His tour begins on July 26 at the Toyota Center in Houston and is set to finish on September 22 at the FLA Live Arena in Ft. Lauderdale.
