Kanye West Cancels Los Angeles Concert Last Minute

Following a headline-making week, Kanye West canceled his Los Angeles show Sunday night just hours before it was scheduled to begin.

Ticketmaster posted that the show, which was supposed begin at 8 p.m. at the Forum, was canceled at approximately 5 p.m. The ticket vendor did not give an explanation for the cancellation.

West also did not address the cancellation on any of his social media channels. On Thursday night, the rapper told the crowd at a San Jose concert that he would have voted for President-elect Donald Trump if he had voted in the election, eliciting mostly boos from the crowd.

“There are methods, non-political methods to speaking that I like, that I feel were very futuristic,” he could be heard telling the audience in videos posted to social media. “That style, and that method of communication has proven that it can beat a politically correct way of communication, and I f— with that.”

Just a day before the last-minute cancellation, West again made headlines with statements he made at his Sacramento show on Saturday night. West appeared on stage 90 minutes late, and when he did, he performed only four songs before launching into a wide-ranging rant, slamming Beyonce, Jay Z, Google, Hillary Clinton, and Mark Zuckerberg.
