We have some very good news for all Kanye West fans, accompanied by some relatively bad news for those fans that live in Australia. According to Roc Nation, West's 7-date tour of the continent that was supposed to begin on May 2nd has now been postponed until September to allow time for West to finish his follow up to last year's Yeezus.
Here's what the rapper's management company announced yesterday:
