After kicking off his world tour in Seattle on Saturday night, Kanye West postponed the second night of the tour hours before showtime.
No reason was given but we can bet Kanye either wants to fix things with the set or have the lights run smoother.
Does anyone rehearse anymore? We are sure Kanye does rehearse although maybe stopping by Kimmel and being in Paris a couple times the past 2 months hurt seeing things with the show.
The Vancouver date will now be October 31st with the next date being San Jose this Tuesday, October 22nd.-DocFB
