The rapper upset fans by walking out of a show in Sacramento, California on Saturday night and then scrapped a rescheduled Sunday concert in Los Angeles.

Kanye West has cancelled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour.

The Stronger rapper was due to take his trek to the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California on Tuesday (22Nov16), but that show and all his upcoming tour dates have now been axed. A reason for the cancellation has not been announced.

"The remaining dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been canceled," a statement from a representative reads. "Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase."

West was also billed to perform shows in Georgia, Pennsylvania and Texas.

The tour cancellation comes a day after he scrapped a rescheduled concert at the The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday night (20Nov16). The gig was a make-up show for one he cut short due to vocal issues.

He also stormed offstage after just four tracks in Sacramento, California on Saturday night (19Nov16), following a tirade aimed at Beyonce and Jay Z.

He told fans Beyonce wouldn't perform with him at the MTV Video Music Awards show unless she won a prize Kanye was also up for, and he lashed out at old pal Jay for not keeping in touch with him.

"Beyonce, I was hurt 'cause I heard that you said you wouldn't perform unless you won Video of the Year over me, and over Hotline Bling," he told the crowd, explaining that he still considered Beyonce "great" and he wasn't trying to diss her.

"We are all equal," he continued, "but sometimes, we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are - just to win. F**k winning! F**k looking cool...! F**k all that!"
