After being forced to postpone a couple of tour dates on his Yeezus tour already, Kanye West has postponed three more dates due to a damaged 60-foot LED screen.
In a statement on his website, the rapper confirmed the tour had to be delayed because the truck carrying the screen was in an accident.
“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,” read the statement.
“As a result of this event, it is impossible to put on the show and some of the shows on The Yeezus Tour will be postponed until these essential pieces can be reengineered and refabricated.”
CBS News notes Kendrick Lamar opens for West and the tour kicked off last month in Seattle.
It was already announced West would postpone his show scheduled for Friday night in Anaheim, Calif.
