Kanye West cancels Vancouver show, promises October 31 make-up date
Here's the bad news folks: Kanye West has cancelled his show tonight at Rogers Arena. So if you are about to fire up that special roaster you've been saving since you bought tickets for the rapper's Vancouver appearance earlier this summer, time to put the Zippo away, get off the Skytrain, and get home in time to watch tonight's episode of The Walking Dead.
The good news is that the show has been rescheduled for Halloween night at Rogers, which means that, should someone laugh at your best attempts to look gangsta for the concert, you can save some dignity by pretending it's a costume.
Rumour has it that West will also be performing a special set on the October 31 make-good show, with songs scheduled to include "Halloween" by the Dead Kennedys, "Halloween" by Siouxie and the Banshees, "It's Halloween" by the Shaggs, and "Everyday is Halloween" by Ministry. And that's just the first four numbers.
