After giving over more and more of his shows to rants the past week and facing considerable backlash over his admiration of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, Kanye West has decided to simply cancel his latest concert.

Ticketmaster confirmed that Sunday night’s The Forum show in Los Angeles was called off at 5pm - three hours before it was due to start. The ticket provider also offered refunds for customers who attended West’s Sacramento show on Saturday at which he performed only four songs (the LA concert was supposed to be making up for this).

Kanye didn’t address the cancellation on any of his social media channels, but did fill his Instagram feed with a ton of photos of low-res photos of vintage clothing.

The barrage of Maison Margiela fashion is the only thing he has posted since admitting on stage that he would have voted for Trump, which has led to fans burning their Yeezys in the streets.

Update

A representative for Kanye West has confirmed that entirety of the rest of his Saint Pablo Tour, 21 shows in total, has been cancelled.

A reason was not given, but the rep told Pitchfork that "tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase."

It was apparently the work of Kanye’s ‘Fade’ director and creative assistant Eli Russell Linnetz, who wrote on his own Instagram: “new installation on @kanyewest.”

West arrived on stage 90 minutes late in Sacramento on Saturday night, critising Jay Z, Beyonce, Hillary Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg in between the four songs he played and asking Jay not to send assassins after him.

At the previous show in San Jose, he said of Trump’s election: “There are methods, non-political methods to speaking that I like, that I feel were very futuristic.

“That style, and that method of communication has proven that it can beat a politically correct way of communication, and I fuck with that.”
