Kanye West has postponed a pair of upcoming tour dates in the wake of an armed robbery targeting his wife, Kim Kardashian, in Paris early Monday morning.

“Due to family concerns, this week’s Philadelphia and Detroit dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been rescheduled,” the tour’s promoter, Live Nation, said in a statement. “The Philadelphia show will take place on December 13th and the Detroit show on December 22nd.” The tour is scheduled to resume Friday, October 7th in Kanye’s hometown of Chicago.

Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint by five masked men. According to reports, the men gained access to Kardashian’s Paris hotel room after threatening the concierge with a weapon. Once inside, the men tied up Kardashian and locked her inside a bathroom. They stole $10 million worth of jewelry as well as two cell phones and her wallet. After speaking with police, Kardashian flew home to New York City.

Kanye learned of the incident mid-way through his performance at New York’s Meadows Music Festival. “I’m sorry. I have a family emergency. I have to stop the show,” he told the audience before exiting the stage.
