He already pushed back one concert last month, and now Kanye West has postponed several more dates for his Yeezus tour after a truck carrying some of his custom stage equipment crashed and damaged the gear.
On Friday, West's record label said the tour would be postponed until the gear can be fixed, meaning at least three concerts will have to be rescheduled.
A rep for Island Def Jam Music Group said in a statement:
- "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."
The rep added that Kanye "will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans." Concerts in Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis will be postponed, and an update on the rest of the scheduled concerts will be made soon.
