Earlier today, it was confirmed that Kanye West‘s Vancouver show has been cancelled (which was actually rescheduled from October 21 after one postponement). As it turns out, there’s more to the story. According to Kanye’s representative at Def Jam via Fader:

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.

Hopefully, these pieces will be replaced soon so that Kanye can wrap up one of the most anticipated tours of the year. Stay tuned for more updates.
