Kanye West’s upcoming tour dates for the ‘Yeezus Tour’ are currently in jeopardy following a road incident in which set pieces, most notably the circular LED screen & video truss were damaged beyond repair according to The FADER. The shows in Vancouver has been postponed for the second time as well as upcoming dates in Minneapolis & Denver.

A statement from a rep at Def Jam says:

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.
