Kanye West Postpones 'Yeezus' Tour Dates After Truck Accident
Kanye West's Yeezus tour has been postponed in Vancouver for a second time. A truck transporting some of West's gear was involved in an accident and the equipment is damaged beyond repair. As a result West is unwilling to "compromise on brining the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans."
Kanye West's Yeezus tour began in Seattle on October 19th and has continued as planned until Wednesday (30th October). Unfortunately an accident involving one of the tour's trucks, on-route to Vancouver, rendered some of West's tour equipment unusable.
Some of the stage gear needed for West's performance has been damaged during a traffic accident.
As a result, West was forced to postpone some of his dates including one on Wednesday in Vancouver, Canada. West postponed the concert until yesterday evening (31st October). Unfortunately the 36-year-old rapper was forced to once again postpone his gig. As a result other dates including those in Denver and Minneapolis have also been postponed until a later date.
West was due to appear in Vancouver last night (31st October).However, a truck carrying some of his tour equipment was involved in an accident. In a statement, Def Jam Records, stated the truck was carrying a custom made video truss and a 60 foot circular LED screen. The gear could not be repaired and will have to be replaced before West continues his performances.
A statement was issued by Def Jam explaining the reasons for the cancellation in Vancouver. Apparently, "this gear is central to the staging of The Yeezus Tour, and central to the creative vision put forth by Kanye West." It appears that West does not feel his own talents are enough to keep fans entertained as his record company, in the press release, states "Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans."
It is not known when West's Yeezus tour will recommence. The statement simply promises "further details on the affected tour dates will be announced shortly."
West has postponed his tour dates until later notice.
