Kanye West Postpones Concert Dates After Damage To Stage Equipment

November 01, 2013 03:00 PM by Suzy Kerr

October 31 was not a good day for Kanye West. The Universe can be a cruel b**** at times, and on Halloween night, it opted for a mean trick instead of a treat when it got to Yeezy’s house. People magazine is reporting that the rapper – and new fiancé to Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian – has been forced to postpone a few of his concerts due to an equipment truck crash, where crucial concert gear was heavily damaged.

According to People, a truck transporting video equipment was involved in an accident en route to Kanye’s next concert in Canada. A Def Jam Music Group representative said, “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.” Apparently, the broken items are a vital part of the show, which cannot go on until they are fixed. The rep confirmed, “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.”

As of now, three shows – those in Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis – are affected, and there’s no word on when they will be rescheduled. Yeezus tour officials say they’ll have more information up on the tour website soon, and that they are committed to putting on the original high-quality audio and visual show that Yeezy envisioned.

The news of the truck crash came on the same day that Kanye and his Keeping Up with the Kardashians baby mama Kim Kardashian announced plans to sue YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley for leaking an illegally-obtained video of the rapper’s proposal to the reality star.
