Kanye West cancels L.A. show one night after walking off stage in Sacramento

Kanye West has canceled his performance Sunday in Los Angeles a night after abruptly walking off stage in a 30-minute appearance that included a long diatribe.

“Tonight's show has been cancelled,” stated a post from The Forum in Los Angeles, where West was due to appear. “Refunds at point of purchase.”

The Ticketmaster site for The Forum in Los Angeles says it has been canceled and tickets are no longer available for sale. Live Nation could not be reached immediately.

The cancellation notice was posted about three hours before the show’s scheduled start.

The Los Angeles show was supposed to be a makeup date after West walked off stage Nov. 3 due to a hoarse voice. On Wednesday, he announced a new date Sunday at the Forum with free entry for fans who were at the Nov. 3 concert, as well as free tickets for local inner-city youth.

His next scheduled date is Tuesday at the Save Mart Center in Fresno.
