The rapper said it wasn’t fair to tour on just old songs, so he decided to postpone.
Professor Green has announced that he is postponing his November UK tour.
Following an accident earlier this year, which the rapper said “put everything in jeopardy”, he hasn’t been able to complete his album and told fans on Twitter that it wasn’t fair to tour on just old songs “…that’s not fair on you and I’m in this for the music, not a quick buck.” he said.
I wasn’t going to short change you all with the same set all over again, when I come back it’s going to be with a bang x

Green, who recently married Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh, was injured in May after getting crushed between two cars.
In an official statement, he apologised, saying:
“Firstly, I can’t apologise enough for postponing the tour, I’m as excited to see you all as I hope you are me! Everything was on schedule and then I was unfortunate enough to end up sandwiched between two cars leaving my health and album/touring schedule in absolute jeopardy.
I want to make the best possible album I can for you all and I want you to have heard the new music so as we can all enjoy the shows how they’re meant to be enjoyed. I could have rushed an album for the sake of making the tour but as I hope you all know I’m in this for the music and am not willing to let it suffer due to a date in the diary.
I promise you all it’ll be worth the wait, and there’ll be some bits and bobs in the meantime to bridge the gap… and a new F64.
Apologies for the inconvenience, I’ll see you soon x”
