Kanye West postpones Yeezus tour dates following injuries to a 60-ft circular LED screen

Kanye West has postponed upcoming dates on his Yeezus mega-tour across North America (previously scheduled for October through December), mere hours after cancelling tonight’s show in Vancouver for a second time (it was originally happening October 20). The reason for the indefinite delay is this: yesterday, an official The Yeezus Tour truck was involved in an accident that damaged a “custom-made video truss” and a “60-ft circular LED screen,” according to a press release from Island Def Jam — two crucial components for Rogers Arena ticket-holders 23C-25A who were expecting a truly 360° multimedia event.

Island Def Jam goes on: “The Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis dates have been postponed. Further details on the affected tour dates will be announced shortly.” If this isn’t enough of an explanation, Island Def Jam recommends purchasing 808s and Heartbreak on vinyl as food for thought.
