Kanye West Postpones ‘Yeezus Tour’

Kanye West

The show won’t go on for Yeezus. Kanye West has put his “Yeezus Tour” on hold after an accident damaged some of the stage equipment.

His upcoming concerts in Vancouver, Denver, and Minneapolis have been postponed, while the rest of the tour is on hold until further notice, according to a statement from his label Island Def Jam.

“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,” read the statement. “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.”

The statement continued, “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.”

The tour kicked off in Seattle on Oct. 19 and played five additional shows including two at L.A.’s Staples Center. Friday’s show in Anaheim was previously postponed until December due to “production logistics.”

    Does this mean my November 21st concert is cancelled/postponed or just the 3 dates? #confused

    @kimrayj, totally agree & that’s been the word since the tour started … ticket sells have been less than stellar despite all the stunts this queen has been pulling (the jimmy kimmel feud, engagement, etc). he’s a rapper right so all he really needs is a microphone NOT a pop star production. #bullshit

    Kanye is really dumb. He wants sales but always do stupid things. I’m catholic so how in the world I’m going to go to a concert where Jesus appears and from a rapper that calls himself Jesus and God? Nope, no money for him even if the album is good (which is not).
