Kanye West’s first solo tour in five years has hit a snag. The “New Slaves” rapper’s publicist released a statement announcing that three upcoming show stops have been postponed.
Concert goers in Vancouver, Denver, and Minneapolis will have to wait on further notice about when Ye will be making up those shows. The delayed dates are result of a bus accident that happened on October 30th. Apparently, a custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen was permanently damaged from the accident.

Read the statement from Kanye’s publicist below:
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.
