Following a truck accident that damaged equipment necessary to kick off his nationwide tour, Kanye West has been forced to postpone his “Yeezus” tour due to “production issues.” A statement explaining his reasons for postponing/cancelling several upcoming “Yeezus” tour dates in cities like Denver and Minneapolis has been released saying.
“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 re-engineered and re-fabricated.”
How long the repairs will take is unknown at this time but please believe West will not be taking the stage until everything is just right.
“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,” the statement continued.
Stay tuned for further developments on West’s new tour dates. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
