Praise Yeezus: Kanye West Reschedules Previously Postponed Tour Dates
More Hip-Hop/R&B News
Kanye West fans anxious to get their taste of the rapper’s wildly ambitious Yeezus Tour can rest easy. The headline-generating rapper has rescheduled the remaining dates on his much-discussed North American tour.
The beleaguered tour featuring Kendrick Lamar hit a wall after two successful L.A. shows, when West’s elaborate stage set-up was damaged in a truck accident. The crash caused West to postpone a string of Yeezus tour dates in cities like Denver and Minneapolis, along with a pair of shows in his hometown of Chicago.
Today (Nov. 6), concert promoter AEG Live announced that West’s tour will now resume on Saturday, November 16 in Philadelphia, PA. The Chicago shows, as well as dates in Toronto and Detroit, have also been rescheduled for later in the year.
Now for the bad news: previously scheduled shows in Denver, Columbus, Montreal, Minneapolis, St. Louis and Vancouver, which weathered two postponements, have all been effectively canceled.
