UPDATE 4: Valerie Goodew, one of the organizers of Saturday’s show, told The Bulletin this morning that it is “postponed” and the event’s page on Facebook appears to have been deleted.

UPDATE 1: My colleague at The Bulletin, Elise Gross, called Kanye West‘s publicist’s office and a receptionist there said she could confirm that he will not be in Bend this weekend.
