Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is reportedly going to leave fans hanging later this week by nixing a previously scheduled Yeezus tour performance in California.
According to reports, Mr. West has decided to reschedule his Friday, November 1, performance in Los Angeles to mid-December.
Kanye West has postponed the concert he was scheduled to play Friday night at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Blaming "production logistics," a representative for the venue said Tuesday that the show will be rescheduled for Dec. 13. Tickets for the original date will be honored, the rep said. West brought the production -- which involves a giant replica of a mountain and 12 female dancers wearing sheer body stockings -- to L.A.'s Staples Center for shows on Saturday and Monday.

Fans were crushed over the last minute no-show news, slamming the artist on line. @RogersArena @KanyeWest well that sucks. me and my friend spent like 300$ bussing here from Vernon so. -- ?liberty bangerz? (@libertywalker) October 21, 2013 "@RogersArena @KanyeWest well that sucks. me and my friend spent like 300$ bussing here from Vernon so" one ticket holder wrote and continued to bash Kim Kardashian's baby daddy. @ho0dbitch @Stan4PopQueenz LETS FIND KANYE SND SCALP HIM Another ticket holder reached out to RadarOnline.com to complain about the scheduling change saying that going on the new date, October 31, was not going to happen "I took time off work, spend money on a hotel and ferry so needless to say I am not impressed. What a waste of my time and money. Now I can't even attend the concert on Halloween because I can't afford to take the time off after having to pay for hotels and etc. for a concert that didn't even happen! SO over Kanye and his diva behaviour!" (Radar Online)
Some fans took issue with him not directly addressing concertgoers about the canceled night.
Alex ?@Swigger74 14h dissed the last minute cancellation and change, writing: "@kanyewestCanceled concert refunds? Won't help those who paid to travel and stay for the concert tonight. What a joke of an artist." Completely silent on his own account, Kanye's lack of an explanation enraged fans too. "I'm over @kanyewest and the Kardashians after his Vancouver concert cancellation and he didn't say a peep to his fans. #overit" It was reported that his equipment trailer was stolen after the Seattle show, but fans lashed out, saying that the uber rich performer could have replaced the stolen goods.
