Azealia Banks Throws Another Pop Sized Tantrum And Storms Off Stage In Melbourne

American rapper Azealia Banks has once again thrown a public tantrum, storming off stage just 90-seconds into her Melbourne show on Saturday night.

Fans are now demanding refunds from the Listen Out Festival after Banks walked off stage. She was the headline act for the festival.

The unpredictable pop star did the same thing in Sydney earlier in the week stopping her show just 15-minutes into her set. She set this pattern of behaviour up in Australia when she only played for 25-minutes at her Splendour In The Grass set in 2012 and refused to take the stage for an Adelaide show for Future Music earlier this year citing sound problems.

“Sorry to all the festival-goers in Melbourne !!!!! See ya tomorrow in Brisbane,” she tweeted minutes after vacating the stage at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

 

To further anger fans this morning she tweeted, “Had a wonderful night off in Melbourne!”

 

The Listen Up Festival also featured Disclosure, Duke Dumont, John Talbot and Rufus.

The final day for the festival is this afternoon Sunday, October 6 at the Cultural Forecourt at Southbank in Brisbane.

UPDATE: The promoter for the Listen Up tour has added the following statement:

“Azealia Banks was forced to cut her set short last night at the Listen Out Festival in Melbourne on 5th October 2013. This was as a result of a member of the audience throwing a full can on beer at her on stage. The incident made Azealia and her stage crew feel unsafe. Banks would like to apologise to those fans in the audience whose experience was affected by the behaviour of one individual.”
