Kanye West to resume tour

Kanye West is set to resume his Yeezus tour on Saturday (16Nov13) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania after having to cancel several shows due to production problems.

The Jesus Walks hitmaker's tour has been on hold since 30 October (13), when a custom-made video truss and massive circular LED screen were damaged beyond repair, forcing him to axe a Halloween night (31Oct13) gig in Vancouver, Canada.


West also had to scrap a gig in Denver, Colorado last Friday (01Nov13), and Tuesday night's (05Nov13) show in Minneapolis, Minnesota.


The rapper's concerts in Chicago, Illinois, Toronto, Canada, and Detroit, Michigan have all been rescheduled, but many other shows have been cancelled due to "routing logistics", according to West's record label.


The Yeezus tour kicked off on 19 October (13).
