Kanye West’s publicist released a statement announcing that three upcoming tour stops have been postponed.
Fans in Vancouver, Denver, and Minneapolis will have no choice but to wait and find out when the rapper will be making up the shows. The postponed shows are due to a bus accident that occured on October 30th. It was reported that a custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen was damaged beyond repair from the accident.
The statement from Kanye’s publicist is written below:
“Yesterday, on the road to Vancouver, a truck carrying The Yeezus Tour’s custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen was in an accident that damaged the gear beyond repair. This gear is central to the staging of The Yeezus Tour, and central to the creative vision put forth by Kanye West and his design team at DONDA. As a result of this event, it is impossible to put on the show and The Yeezus Tour will be postponed until these essential pieces can be reengineered and refabricated. Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans. The Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis dates have been postponed. Further details on the affected tour dates will be announced shortly.”
