More Bad News For Kanye West And Yeezus Fans
Kanye West has cancelled two more shows on his upcoming Yeezus tour because of damaged equipment. The rapper recently postponed gigs in Anaheim, Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis before postponing November 7 and 9 tour dates in Chicago.
Damaged equipment is the reason for the cancellation. Last week, the rapper and his team released this statement to HipHollywood.com explaining what happened:
“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.”
No word on if Ye’s November 8 show in Columbus, Ohio will happen as scheduled, but we detect it too is likely to be scraped until further notice.
