Halsey Claps Back At Fans Who "Reacted With So Much Contempt” About Tour Dates
27 March 2018, 15:49
Some fans suggested she skipped an entire continent so she could go on tour with G-Eazy.
Remember how we all used to laugh at stans in Brazil who would zealously comment 'COME TO BRAZIL!!!' under literally every social post by their favourite artist? Well, don't be surprised if you start seeing 'COME TO EUROPE!!!' under every Halsey post from now on after she announced a world tour...with only one date in Europe.
Yesterday (26/03) Halsey announced a mammoth world tour beginning in April through to September, taking in Australia & New Zealand (6 dates), Latin America (5 dates), North America (20 dates), Asia (5 dates) but only one date in Europe (London).
While Halsey sells substantially more records in North America than anywhere else, so it makes sense for her to spend more time there, some fans felt that the tour should have included more dates in places she doesn't perform as often. Then some fans took it way too far and suggested that she wasn't touring in the month of May so she could go on tour with her boyfriend G-Eazy, who is on tour at that time.
Stans being stans, they took their frustrations out in the only way they know how: Twitter.
You screw a whole fucking continent to be at another tour that’s not even yours? Ok sis!— Tiffani Amber (@KindlyUnspokenn) March 26, 2018
Can’t believe @halsey thinks it’s okay to do 2 North American tours for hfk but literally give the whole of Europe 1 date 🙃— lauren (@ffslozz) March 26, 2018
Halsey's world tour includes, apparently Africa, Asia and Europe don't exist. pic.twitter.com/gJHm0DBHd9— 1950 (@Antonette_Liebe) March 26, 2018

Halsey has now clapped back at the criticism online, saying she hasn't announced all the dates yet and that she is busy filming a movie.
I’m filming a movie for 2 months. I haven’t announced all the shows yet. I’m sorry you guys reacted with so much contempt, I’m going to a lot of countries I’ve never toured in before and also going back to day 1 fans in other countries too. https://t.co/DtBz3VUkz7— h (@halsey) March 27, 2018
Halsey has a point. To imply she's not touring in certain places so she can be with her boyfriend (which actually isn't that bad of a thing to want to do FYI) is a bit conspiratorial. Anyway, the good news is that there are more dates to come and, ummm, did she just casually mention she's going to be in a movie? *drops dead*
