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."

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
