After numerous woes forced Kanye West to shift the itinerary of his Yeezus tour, the elaborate production is back on track, a rep for the rapper announced Wednesday.

West will resume his tour on Nov. 16 in Philadelphia.

Last week, West moved his Nov. 1 gig at the Honda Center in Anaheim to Dec. 13, citing “production logistics.” And in more bad luck, the truck carrying the set’s custom-made video truss and a 60-foot circular LED screen was in an accident on the way to Vancouver, Canada, forcing the rapper to postpone the show for a second time as the damaged gear was repaired.

He has also postponed dates in Denver, Minneapolis and his native Chicago due to the accident.

As a result, dates in Chicago, Toronto and Detroit have now been shifted to December. Originally set to wrap Dec. 13 with the rescheduled Anaheim date, West’s tour now concludes Dec. 23 in Toronto.

However, citing “routing logistics,” West's gigs in Vancouver; Denver; Columbus, Ohio; Montreal; Minneapolis; and St. Louis have all been canceled.
