Kanye West has postponed more tour international shows on his struggling Yeezus tour, with his scheduled Australian dates now pushed back to September 2014.

The May tour dates have been postponed until later in 2014, with LiveNationa Australia claiming the postponement is due to West wanting to return to the studio to finish work on his follow-up to 2013 album, Yeezus.

The LiveNation Australia announcement read: "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."

This announcement follows the reported news that West has also postponed his scheduled European dates, with German promoter Mark Lieberberg breaking the news on 28 March 2014.

"The originally planned for the summer of 2014 Yeezus tour by Kanye West has finally been moved," said Lieberberg. "Production problems were blamed for this decision. Advance ticket sales had not yet begun. At present there is not yet clear when the hip hop superstar will occur in Europe."

There is no news on other EU dates, and Wireless fesitval are yet to make a statement.
