The performances, scheduled for tonight in Philadelphia and Thursday in Detroit have now been postponed “due to family concerns,” concert promoter Live Nation revealed. The shows will now take place in December, while West’s tour is set to resume on Friday in Chicago.
West abruptly ended his set while performing yesterday at the Meadows Festival in New York. “Due to a family emergency, Kanye West was forced to end his performance towards the end of his set. We appreciate the great show he put on for fans to close out the inaugural Meadows Festival. Our thoughts are with West and his family,” organizers said in a statement on Twitter.
Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early. Please get home safely.

Kim Kardashian was in Paris attending fashion week when gunmen disguised as French Police officers held her at gunpoint on Sunday night, only hours after she attended the Givenchy Spring 2017 show, and robbed her of millions worth of jewelry. The reality star left the country shortly after to return to the U.S.
West’s concerts organizer Live Nation said “the Philadelphia show will take place on December 13 and the Detroit show on December 22.”
