MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Looks like Minneapolis is the latest city to join the list of postponed concerts from Kanye West’s Yeezus Tour.

According to a released statement from West’s publicist, a tour truck was in an accident, which caused damage to the staging.

Kanye West’s Yeezus Tour was scheduled to stop at the Target Center on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

More information on a make-up date will be released later.

The full statement from his publicist is as follows:

“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.”

The concert tour marked West’s first solo tour in five years.

West has previously canceled two prior dates on his Yeezus tour for other production-related incidents.
