Kanye West postpones Australian tour


Kanye West has postponed his upcoming Australian tour so he can focus on completing his next record.

The rapper was set to kick off a seven-date trek in Perth on May 2, but he has now pushed the shows back until September. The delay is to enable West to finish his next studio album.

A statement from tour promoter Live Nation reads: "Due to unexpected timing requirements to finish his highly anticipated new studio album, scheduled for a 2014 release, Kanye West regretfully announces the postponement of his upcoming tour dates in Australia." The new run of shows will commence on September 5.

It is the latest disappointment for fans waiting to catch West on stage -- his Yeezus tour has been hit with a string of delays and cancellations, including his tour dates in Germany last month. He also scrapped a series of shows in North America in October after his equipment was damaged in a road accident.
