Kanye West has been forced to cancel more dates on his Yeezus tour due to a car accident that damaged some of his stage equipment.  

A show in Vancouver tonight — a rescheduled date from a cancellation earlier in the month — has been postponed.  In addition, upcoming dates scheduled for Denver on November 3 and Minneapolis on November 5 have been postponed.  No new dates for the shows have been announced.

“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,” said the rapper’s rep, Gabe Tesoriero, in a statement to ABC News Radio.

“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,”  Tesoriero continued.

Since West won’t “compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed” to the stage, the shows will be put off for now.   No word on how long it will take to have the damaged gear replaced.
