Travis Scott has added his name to the ever-growing list of rappers and musicians who have cancelled their New Zealand shows at the last minute.

The music star - known for his songs Antidote and Pick Up The Phone - was set to perform to a sellout crowd at Auckland's Powerstation tomorrow night, but has been forced to return to America, due to an "unforeseen commitment".

Fans of Scott shared their annoyance at the news on social media:

"What's harder, getting the PM to agree to do anything, or getting rappers not to cancel their shows?" Twitter user @strewnryan joked.

Refunds will be available for all ticket-holders.

Last month, UK rapper Skepta cancelled all his upcoming New Zealand shows, just days before he was due to perform in Auckland, Christchurch and Dunedin.

Other rappers to cancel NZ appearances in the last year alone include Chris Brown, The Game and Vic Mensa.
