Kanye West Cancels Vancouver Show on Yeezus Tour
— Q13 FOX News (@Q13FOX) October 21, 2013
The two biggest tours of the fall have already run into issues despite the fact they’ve just begun. Drake had to postpone a Would You Like a Tour? stop in Philadelphia due to technical issues on Saturday (Oct. 19) and now Kanye West has faced a Yeezus tour dilemma.
The G.O.O.D. Music leader had to postpone a show scheduled in Vancouver on Sunday (Oct. 20). Yeezy was set to perform at the city’s Rogers Center with Kendrick Lamar as the opening act.
The concert had to be postponed until Oct. 31 due to “unforeseen circumstances” according to a news release from Canucks Sports & Entertainment. Many believe a stolen equipment truck is the reason behind the situation. Like Drake’s postponement, Vancouver was scheduled to be West’s second tour stop.
The news was even more crushing for Vancouver fans because of how the cancellation was announced just hours before showtime. People went to Twitter to express their disappointment in a tongue-in-cheek manner, while others even thought Kim Kardashian’s birthday (Oct. 21) was the reason behind the delay.

Kanye West has so many tickets left for sale. I’m surprised he hasn’t cancelled his show and ridiculed Vancouver for not supporting Yeezus.

West met Jesus during his tour-opening performance in Seattle on Saturday. Yeezus (and maybe Jesus) will walk again on Tuesday (Oct. 22) in San Jose, Calif.
