Having already pushed his October 20 show in Vancouver to October 31, Kanye West has now put an indefinite hold on his ‘Yeezus Tour’ due to an accident in the city that directly affected his stage equipment. The unfortunate incident caused irreparable damage to a custom-made video truss and 60-foot circular LED screen, both of which are essential to Kanye and conducting his stage performance as intended, and has resulted in his Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis shows being postponed till further notice. Read the official statement 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.
