We'd like to let you finish, Kanye, but you need to actually start first.

Rogers Arena confirmed to The Huffington Post B.C. that Kanye Wests's Yeezus tour Vancouver stop has once again been postponed.

The tour was originally supposed to hit Vancouver on Oct. 20, but was cancelled last-minute and rescheduled for Oct. 31. But today's Halloweak news is that the rapper's Vancouver apprearance has once again been pushed back—and that's all the information the Arena has at this time.

UPDATE: Rogers Arena posted a quote from an Island Def Jam press release explaining why the show was postponed:

"Yesterday, on the road to Vancouver, a truck carrying The Yeezus Tour’s custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen was in an accident that damaged the gear beyond repair. This gear is central to the staging of The Yeezus Tour, and central to the creative vision put forth by Kanye West and his design team at DONDA. As a result of this event, it is impossible to put on the show and The Yeezus Tour will be postponed until these essential pieces can be reengineered and refabricated. Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans. The Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis dates have been postponed. Further details on the affected tour dates will be announced shortly."

Twitter was, of course, aflutter with the news.

Thomas Molander tweeted a joke that the superstar rescheduled the concert to coincide with Christmas and his birthday:

And Mun Bargri suggested that George Bush is getting his Hurricane-Katrina-comment revenge on the rapper.

Jas Greywall referred West to DJ Tiesto, who postponed his Vancouver show on Oct. 28 due to travel delays but is scheduled to make up for it with an extra-long set this Saturday, Nov. 2.
