Kanye West's second stop on the "Yeezus" tour, in Vancouver, BC, has been postponed.
More news of a concert postponement in recent days, following that of Drake's "Would You Like A Tour?" show in Philedelphia, the second stop on Kanye West's "Yeezus" tour has been cancelled.
Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar just kicked off the "Yeezus" tour last night in Seattle, and was headed for Vancouver, Canada tonight. However news comes from Rogers Arena's Twitter that the show has been postponed until October 31st.
There are no details as to why the show was postponed, we'll keep you updated.
[Update: Anaheim Date Postponed]
Kanye West has been forced to delay yet another date on his extravagant Yeezus tour. The Anaheim stop, which was meant to take place on Friday November 1st, will now happen on December 13th. Once again, production logistics have been cited as the reason for the new date, though the fact that Ye will be performing at his rescheduled show in Vancouver the night before may also be a factor.

[Update #2: More Tour Stops Postponed]
Kanye West isn't having very good luck in attempting to perform in Vancouver, BC. The rapper was scheduled to perform there tonight, after his original date had been postponed (see above), but due to a truck crash containing important stage equipment, he's unable to go on with the show.
A truck carrying 'Ye's custom-made video truss and a 60-foot circular LED screen crashed on Wednesday, leaving both items damaged beyond repair. Kanye's creative vision for the "Yeezus" show would be out of whack if he performed without those items, and so he's postponing the tour stop in Vancouver until they've both been repaired.
The tour stop in Anaheim (as we mentioned above) as well as the November 3rd Denver show and November 5th Minneapolis show will also be postponed while the stage equipment is being fixed.
Read the statement released by Def Jam below. Sounds like more tour dates will be postponed, so stay tuned.
Yesterday, on the road to Vancouver, a truck carrying The Yeezus Tour’s custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen was in an accident that damaged the gear beyond repair. This gear is central to the staging of The Yeezus Tour, and central to the creative vision put forth by Kanye West and his design team at DONDA.As a result of this event, it is impossible to put on the show and The Yeezus Tour will be postponed until these essential pieces can be reengineered and refabricated. Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans. The Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis dates have been postponed. Further details on the affected tour dates will be announced shortly.
[Update: Chicago Dates Postponed]
With new dates soon approaching, and no update from Kanye's camp in regards to the screen damaged in a truck crash last week, many were wondering if more shows would be postponed.
Turns out, the Chicago dates scheduled for this week will be postponed for the time being. A representative from the United Center has confirmed that Ye will be pushing back his hometown shows, but has not provided any information on the reason why. It is probably safe to assume that Kanye's giant LED screen is still in the works.
Read the statement below.
The Kanye West shows that were scheduled for Thursday, November 7th and Saturday, November 9th have been postponed until further notice.
