Kanye West postpones Australian leg of 'Yeezus' tour to make album deadline

By Gina DiFalco,

Kanye West is postponing the Australian leg of his Yeezus tour in order to focus on completing his new album, due out later this year.

According to a press release on Roc Nation, West has pushed back the May shows to September.

“Due to unexpected timing requirements to finish his highly anticipated new studio album, scheduled for a 2014 release, Kanye West regretfully announces the postponement of his upcoming tour dates in Australia," said the statement.

Rolling Stone notes West’s Donda Music joined forces with his Watch the Throne collaborator Jay Z’s Roc Nation in March. Roc Nation now manages West’s music branch of his creative house.

West’s plagued Yeezus tour ended in December of 2013 and he extended it in January.

He also announced a Yeezus concert film is coming, which will be directed by Hype Williams. The film’s trailer appeared on his website in February, and no details are given besides the fact that it’s “coming to theaters.” The trailer features his song “Coldest Winter,” which was on his album 808s and Heartbreak.
