The second coming of Kanye West's Yeezus will happen – unless you happen to live in Vancouver, Denver, Columbus, Montreal, Minneapolis or St. Louis. Following last week's announcement that several dates on the rapper's effects-heavy Yeezus tour would be postponed, promoter AEG announced Wednesday that dates in those cities will be scrapped altogether because of "routing logistics."

The concerts originally scheduled for Nov. 12 and 13 at Toronto's Air Canada Centre have been reslotted for Dec. 22 and 23. Shows in Chicago and Detroit have also been rescheduled.

Last week, the Chicago-raised hip-hopper scuttled three shows – including a Halloween night performance in Vancouver – following a road accident that had damaged concert equipment "beyond repair" and had made it "impossible to put on the show." A statement from AEG said a truck carrying the tour's custom-made video truss and 60-foot circular LED screen was involved in a crash on the way to Vancouver.

The Vancouver show, which was originally scheduled for Oct. 20, had been previously postponed hours before showtime because of "unforeseen circumstances."
