Kanye West Postpones 'Yeezus' Dates Due To Damaged Equipment
Kanye West has postponed three shows from his ongoing Yeezus headlining tour due to damaged equipment resulting from a truck accident that occurred on Wednesday (Oct. 30).
A press statement from Island Def Jam details the accident, which occurred on the way to Vancouver and apparently damaged a "custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen" being used on the tour, which kicked off in Seattle earlier this month. The gear was wrecked beyond repair, and three shows on the trek -- including Thursday's show in Vancouver, which was itself originally scheduled for Oct. 20 before being bumped to Oct. 31 -- will be rescheduled due to the accident.
"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," reads the statement. "Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans."
Below is the list of postponed tour dates, with "further details on the affected tour dates" to be announced soon. Click here for a review of West's Yeezus tour, which includes an onstage mountain and a Jesus look-alike.
