Supporting acts Nas and Santigold were conspicuously absent from the Portland stop on Ms. Lauryn Hill’s Miseducation anniversary tour Wednesday (Sept. 12), and last night (Sept. 14), Santigold confirmed on social media that she has been dropped from the remaining dates of the run.

Portland fans were reportedly given no warning that the two openers would not be appearing, and instead a DJ opened for Hill. After a fan tweeted at her asking what happened, Santigold replied and apologized, saying the note she received from Hill’s management cited “production issues” as the reason for her and Nas’s dismissal.

Nas has not yet addressed the cancelations on social media, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that he will not be performing at the upcoming Oct. 5 stop at Chaifetz Arena. The rapper was tweeting about the tour’s February dates in New Zealand as recently as Sept. 12.

In July, Hill canceled and postponed several dates on the tour citing “unforeseen production issues.”
