There’s been no shortage of bad news coming from Kanye West’s Yeezus Tour these days. The rapper announced this week that the entirety of the tour has been postponed due to a truck accident that damaged key pieces of stage equipment. The same incident caused the Vancouver concert on Oct. 31st to be postponed at the last minute for the second time. It’s now apparent that the damaged video screen and truss will not be replaced in time for the rest of the Yeezus Tour to go as planned.
Make-up dates have not yet been announced.

After rescheduling his October 20th date in Vancouver due to “unforeseen circumstances”, Kanye West pulled the plug yet again today on his October 31st (Vancouver), November 3rd (Denver) and November 5th (Minneapolis) concert stops. This time, an equipment truck accident is being blamed for the postponement, with a video truss and 60-foot LED screen used for the concert reportedly being “damaged beyond repair”.
