Kanye West has cancelled all his remaining tour dates in the US following a series of bizarre on-stage incidents.

Pitchfork originally reported that the scheduled "Saint Pablo" tour dates had been called off. Both Ticketmaster and Live Nation have subsequently listed a majority of remaining dates as cancelled.

It follows a Saint Pablo gig in Sacramento, California over the weekend that saw the rapper deliver a lengthy rant, which included criticisms directed at his once collaborators Beyoncé and Jay Z.

West then left the stage after only three songs, simply announcing "the show's over".

The venue - Golden 1 Centre - has since announced that all tickets will be refunded.

West - who had been performing on a special 'floating' stage throughout the tour - also abruptly cancelled a performance that was set to take place in LA on Sunday night.

Last week, the hip-star made headlines after telling fans at another gig that he would have voted for Donald Trump - had he voted.
