Kanye West has postponed another tour date on his Yeezus tour, pushing back a performance scheduled for November 1st at Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The venue cited "production logistics" in a web post as the reason for moving the show to December 13th. West had previously postponed to Thursday a Vancouver performance that had originally been the second stop on the tour, which opened October 19th in Seattle.

The rapper didn't skimp on production for the tour: his stage set includes a 60-foot tall white mountain and a huge circular video screen, along with a guy dressed as Jesus, a cadre of women dressed in sheer white body suits and various masks that West wears throughout the show.

His tour dates aren't the only stops West has made in large venues: on a day off earlier this month, the rapper rented out AT&T Park in San Francisco, where he proposed to girlfriend Kim Kardashian in front of friends and family, with backing from the Chicago Symphony. Kardashian earlier this year gave birth to the couple's first child, a daughter they named North.

West released Yeezus in June to critical acclaim, including a positive review from Lou Reed. The former Velvet Underground frontman, who died Sunday, called the album "majestic and inspiring."

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
