After a 60 foot LED screen was damaged on the road, Kanye postponed his tour indefinitely. It has now been announced the tour will resume on November 16th.
West's record label, Def Jam, released this statement:
"This gear is central to the staging of The Yeezus Tour and central to the creative vision put fourth by Kanye West and his design team at DONDA. Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans."
Some dates have been rescheduled but the shows in Vancouver, Denver, Columbus, Montreal, Minneapolis, and St. Louis have been straight cancelled due to "routing logistics" for the tour.
LP has to cancel her upcoming fall tour dates due to an unspecified injury. She was supportign Noah & The Whale on tour.
The L.A.-based singer-songwriter's doctors expect her to make a full recovery in the weeks ahead.

Diagnosis: Get better LP!
Rihanna cancelled her show in Houston last night, not because of what happened in Boston but die to illness, her reps claim.
It would be easier to believe if she was not spending every moment she could back in Los Angeles with Chris Brown, as they continue to make up n then break up.
I've lost count of how many shows she has cancelled so far on this tour, about 3 or 4, only to be seen with Chris Brown in L.A. before the illness occurs. Hmm.
She has remained silent on the matter on Twitter but was strong enough to tweet about the Boston tragedy.-DocFB
Diagnosis: How soon til the entire tour is cancelled?
Man. Maybe posting those photos in just her g-string and chaps caused Rihanna to get sick. The singer cancelled her show in Boston after coming down with a case of laryngitis. She performed on Friday to a sold out crowd in Buffalo.
This was the second show of her "Diamonds World Tour" with Live Nation.
The footage above is from her first show on Friday night in Buffalo. Rihanna is slated to perform in Baltimore on Tuesday.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The Boston show will be rescheduled.
Bad news for Green Day fans. They have officially cancelled their 2012 Voodoo Music & Arts Experience performance on October 27th, 2012.
There was no reason given for the band's cancellation in the statement I received but we do know that Billie Joe Armstrong checked into rehab for substance abuse a little over a week ago after the band's Iheartradio performance.
"Canceling shows is something we rarely do," said Tré Cool. "We never want to let our fans down, and we are grateful for all of you being understanding during this time."
For those that may have thought this was for show, it seems like you may be wrong.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Get Well Soon BJ!
