(Reuters) - Rapper Kanye West's world tour was abruptly canceled on Monday, concert promoters said, following a series of shows in which the musician had embarked on rants about politics and the music industry.

"The remaining dates on the SAINT PABLO TOUR have been canceled. Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase", concert promoters Live Nation said in a statement.

The statement gave no reason for the cancellation, and West's representatives did not immediately return calls for comment. However, the announcement followed the last-minute cancellation of a concert by West in Los Angeles on Sunday and a rant-filled show on Saturday in Sacramento, California.
