Kanye West has added another show date in Los Angeles to make up for the gig he cut short earlier this month
Kanye West has added another show in Los Angeles to make up for an axed performance.
The 39-year-old rapper was forced to cut his concert at The Forum in Inglewood, California, short at the start of this month after suffering with throat problems which prevented him from continuing his performance.
The 'Gold Digger' hitmaker has added a new show at the same venue on November 20 to make up for his early exit, this time hoping to deliver a stellar performance on his unique floating stage that projects light and hovers above the crowd.
Ticketholders at the original concert on November 3 who haven't already received a refund will be sent a special code which will allow them access to the rescheduled date for free.
The 'Famous' rapper is also offering a number of free entry tickets to students in selected inner-city schools and music programs in Los Angeles, giving plenty of people the opportunity to see the iconic rapper live.
The news comes after Kanye cut his previous gig short during a performance of 'Only One' about an hour into his set, claiming he couldn't "finish" the concert.
He said on stage at the time: "My voice is so hoarse, I can't finish the show. ... I promise I'll do better next time."
And it isn't the first time Kanye as had to reschedule dates.
He previously announced his second leg of North American tour dates on his current 'Saint Pablo Tour' would include the rescheduled dates in Philadelphia and Detroit, after the star was forced to postpone the shows when his wife Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, France, last month.
For those unable to get their hands on free tickets, a select number of general sale tickets will be made available on Friday (18.11.16), ahead of the concert on Sunday (20.11.16)
