UPDATE:

Kanye West's Yeezus tour dates have been officially rescheduled for Chicago as well as other tour stops.

The Nov. 7 and 9 dates have been moved to Tuesday, Dec. 17 and Wednesday, Dec. 18. Ticketholders should hold onto their tickets; Nov. 7 tickets will be honored Dec. 17, Nov. 9 tickets Dec. 18.

Detroit and Toronto stops on the tour have been rescheduled as well as Chicago. Yeezus will go to Detroit on Dec. 19 and Toronto on Dec. 22-23.

Fake Shore Drive was first to report the postponed shows Monday afternoon. The Hip-Hop blog cited an unnamed source at the United Center, who reportedly confirmed that both shows were postponed. A new date for both shows has not yet been released.

AEG Live, the promoter for the Yeezus tour, contradicted that report Tuesday morning, saying Thursday's show would still go on as scheduled, while the status of Saturday's show was to be determined, but all Yeezus tour stops through Nov. 16 have been postponed.

The Columbus, Ohio stop scheduled for Nov. 8, between the two Chicago dates, has been added to the list of cancelled shows, citing routing logistics as the reason.

Tour dates in Vancouver, Minneapolis and Denver were cancelled last week due to a broken 60-foot LED screen, which is "central to the staging of 'The Yeezus Tour,'" according to a statement released by Def Jam, West’s record label. Wednesday's press release said the Columbus, Montreal and St. Louis shows also have been cancelled.
