Kanye West cancels Vancouver concert the day of the show, again

While promoters have yet to make an official announcement, media outlets and, um, Twitter, are declaring Kanye West’s show tonight (October 31) at Rogers Arena cancelled.

The concert was scheduled as a makeup for on October 20 show at Rogers that had the plug pulled after there were problems getting the set across the border from Seattle the night before.

West’s own Twitter account has made no mention of tonight’s show being called off. If it is indeed cancelled, it’s going to be hard for Vancouverites to not have a complex. You know how George Bush hates black people? Well clearly the rapper also known as Yeezus hates Canadian people.

Once is maybe understandable. Twice in a couple of weeks is just ignorant.

Either that, or Kim Kardashian isn’t letting him skip her Halloween party.

You're ignorant regarding the use of the word ignorant.

How can anyone be surprised?
He's clearly an insecure, immature cry baby. Just look at the nickname he gave himself. Lame. He's also one of the most overrated "performers' in the world today. You should be happy to get your money back.

Well! Yumpin' Yimminy Yeezus (as the Swedish Chef might say)!!

@Conner - Ignorant means uninformed, lacking knowledge. That's a good description of a moronic, spoiled, useless idiot like Kanye. I would also say that anybody who spends more than eight seconds listening to his music is probably brain-dead.

I feel bad for all the people that drove or flew from out of town and have hotel rooms. Pretty sad to get burned twice.

comparing how George bush hates black people to kanye hating Canadians doesn't even make sense. Everyone who hates him is too sensitive, he has made amazing music lyrically but you guys haven't heard anything before 808's so that's cool. And I agree with Connor, I'm not sure you know what ignorant even means..

One of the best artists of our generation. Also one of the biggest assholes. People who insult his artistic abilities clearly have no knowledge of his body of work.

Unfortunately I have been burned twice by this tour. Which really sucks. But I refuse to just dismiss an artist who I definitely feel is one of the greatest of our generation. He is clearly very conflicted.

Like I said...
...Hip hop is poetry for idiots.

Adam, yeeezus uses autotune and couldn't hold a candle to a real artist.

If he had talent the show would have been scaled down and intimate but since the whole thing is preprogrammed for sheeple, it can't happen.

I don't feel sorry for anybody born after 1990 because 90% of the music you hear from today's artists are all autotuned, lipsynced and programmed with computers and you all think these so called artists are amazing.

I'm glad I'm 40 and know the difference between real and fake. Youth today look like dimwits and look up to some seriously lame people.

I don't understand why anyone supports this guy. He does it for himself... not for you. He couldn't have laid it out any clearer for you. If you are going to rip off anyone's music then ripp off his because guess what Vancouver he just took you, twice.

Denver concert he was selling tickets on livingsocial so maybe he checks the sales and if it isn't worth it he postpones until it is.

Kanye cancels and it's on the Straight's site within hours if not minutes. Lou Reed DIES and you have yet to run any sort of remembrance of the man. Your music section kind of sucks doesn't it?
