Where are you, Yeezy?
If it doesn't kill Kanye West, a tour postponement can only make him stronger. Unfortunately, a derailment of his Yeezus dates means he won't be in the Twin Cities at all.


Current Vita.mn cover star Kanye and Kendrick Lamar were set to perform on Tuesday, November 5 at the Target Center, but due to a car crash damaging the stage equipment, we're gonna have to wait a bit longer. Shows in Vancouver, Anaheim, and Denver were also affected by this accident thus far.

Here's the full release from the tour.

"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: The show is canceled. Ugh.

The November 5 Kanye West show at Target Center has been cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

The Yeezus Tour will resume its scheduled routing on Saturday, November 16th at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA.

The Chicago, Toronto, and Detroit dates have been rescheduled.

Due to routing logistics, the Vancouver, Denver, Columbus, Montreal, Minneapolis and St. Louis shows have been cancelled.

The haters are out in force... What's the point of rejoicing over the cancellation of a concert that you weren't even going to attend in the first place? Those who did buy tickets were very excited to see what was guaranteed to be an amazing show.

I should know by now that anything "cultural" that falls outside of the white, 2.3 kids, non-fat sugar-free vanilla latte How I Met Your Mother sector will be a hard sell in MN.

Please answer me: is there a valid reason Kanye and Eminem both never smile? I admit I am no fan of hip-hop/rap but these guys have millions of dollars yet always look pissed in photos. And what's this about Kayne saying he's the biggest rock star in the world? Something tells me Mick Jagger hasn't stopped laughing since he heard this! I know real rock musicians who still get onstage and do a full set with a 102 F fever. Kayne doesn't look like he could even play a kazoo.

Just to be clear, he doesn't sing and he has no talent. That's why he raps.

I understand. True talent is derived from the quality of your stage electronics.

Its because he needs his set to distract people from his lack of talent.
