Mr. Kardashian is resuming his Yeezus tour after an essential part of his concert — the 60-foot LED screen — was damaged in a car crash. The statement on his website said it’s “impossible” to put on the show. And here we thought it was all about the music. Despite the ridiculousness, this is his first tour in five years and we’re sure he’s not going to disappoint. Kendrick Lamar opens.
