Kanye Cancels Vancouver, Denver, Minneapolis Concerts
UPDATE: Kanye’s label has released 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. 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.
UPDATE 2 (11/4): Kanye has apparently now canceled 11/7 and 11/9 dates in Chicago as well.
Bad news for anyone hoping to see Kanye West perform in Vancouver tonight. The show (which was originally postponed from Oct. 20th) has been cancelled, according to BC paper The Province. As of now there are no announced plans to reschedule the show, which (not to rub it in or anything) sounds like it’s pretty spectacular. Tomorrow’s Anaheim stop was recently postponed to 12/13 as well.
