Nearly a week after postponing a trio of West Coast shows, Kanye West is ready to resume the North American leg of the "Yeezus" tour in the coming days.

The hop-hop performer's run, which kicked off last month, will begin again Nov. 16 in Philadelphia and continue as originally planned. Three cities affected by the sidetracked outing -- Chicago; Auburn Hills, MI; and Toronto -- have been rescheduled for late December, while shows in Vancouver (11/1); Denver (11/3); Minneapolis, MN (11/5); and Columbus, OH (11/5); have been canceled due to routing logistics.

The "Yeezus" trek hit an unexpected snag early last week week when a truck carrying a large LED screen used in the production was damaged during a traffic accident.
