NEW YORK (AP) -- Kanye West and Lady Gaga's tour is over before it began.

Just days after announcing dates for an ambitious tour that was to kick off next month, the tour was canceled.

Live Nation announced the news on Thursday. The tour promoter says refunds will be issued.

The name of the tour was to be "Fame Kills."

The cancellation comes on the heels of negative publicity for West. He is still feeling the heat for hijacking Taylor Swift's award-winning moment at the MTV Video Music Awards last month.
