Kanye West has decided to postpone his Yeezus tour after some equipment was damaged.
A statement on Kanye West’s website said a video for the show and a 60ft LED screen were “damaged beyond repair” in an accident on the way to his Vancouver show.
The statement added that it was “impossible” to do the North American shows until the “essential” gear could be rebuilt.
The dates are part of Kanye West’s first solo tour for five years, which started on October 19 in Seattle.
Reviews of the show describe a mountain as part of the set and the rapper being joined on stage by an actor dressed as Jesus.
The statement continued: “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.
“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.”
