Kanye West scraps new tour's second show

Kanye West's North American tour has already hit a snag after he cancelled his second show due to "unforeseen circumstances".

The Stronger hitmaker's Yeezus trek got off to a controversial start in Seattle, Washington on Saturday (19Oct13) when he brought out a Jesus Christ lookalike during his 27-song set.

He was due to head to Canada to perform his second gig at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver on Sunday night (20Oct13), but left thousands of fans disappointed when he cancelled just hours before.

A statement from the venue's bosses reads, "Due to unforeseen circumstances, Rogers Arena has been advised that the October 20th Kanye West show with Kendrick Lamar at Rogers Arena will be postponed.

"The concert has been rescheduled for October 31st. Fans are asked to retain their tickets from the initially scheduled show, as they will be honoured for the rescheduled date of October 31st."

West is set to play San Jose in California on Tuesday (22Oct13).
