Update, 12:15 p.m. 11/6/13: Bad news, y'all. Yeezus is no longer coming to Denver. The Kanye West show at the Pepsi Center, originally slated for November 3, and subsequently postponed, has now officially been canceled. The tour is set to resume next Thursday in Philadelphia, but the new routing means Denver is no longer on the itinerary. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

If you were planning on seeing Kanye West this Sunday night at the Pepsi Center, feel free to start making other plans. The iconoclast mastermind has postponed this weekend's highly anticipated show with Kendrick Lamar. A truck hauling his staging was reportedly involved in an accident en route to Vancouver and was damaged to the point that the tour is not able to continue. A new date hasn't been announced, and is presumably contingent on the set being reconstructed. "Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans," reads a statement from West's camp.
