Kanye West has rescheduled a pair of dates on his current Saint Pablo tour in light of his wife Kim Kardashian’s dramatic robbery in France. 

West’s concerts booked this week at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo (Oct. 4) and the Palace at Auburn Hills, Detroit (Oct. 6) will now take place on Dec. 13 and Dec. 22, respectively.

Ticketholders can use their original tickets on those dates, promoter Live Nation has announced. The concerts giant cites "family concerns" for the tour blip.

Kardashian was reportedly tied up and robbed at gunpoint in her hotel room at the exclusive Hôtel de Pourtalès in Paris' 8th arrondissement. The thieves – said to be five men disguised as police officers -- made off with an estimated $9 million in jewelry, including a ring, as well as two cell phones and a wallet containing credit cards.

West learned of the situation mid-performance Sunday night (Oct. 2) at Meadows Festival in Queens, New York City. He cut his set short, telling the audience "I'm sorry, family emergency, I have to stop the show."

Kanye’s Saint Pablo Tour will resume its planned routing this Friday (Oct. 7) at Chicago's United Center.
