Kanye West get picked up and carried by his backup singers as he brings "The Yeezus Tour" to the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA

Compromise is not in Kanye’s vocabulary.

Yeezus Tour Postponed Due To Truck Crash

The stans may call him a joke of an artist again, but this is the same guy who wouldn’t let Kim leave the house for months. What do they expect?

According to E!:

There may be a bit of a bad-luck cloud hanging over Kanye West’s Yeezus Tour.

With Friday’s show in Anaheim, Calif., already having been postponed due to “production logistics,” it was announced today that the entire tour is on hold after some essential props were destroyed 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,” a spokesman for Island Def Jam Music Group said in a statement obtained by E! News.

“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.”

The huge screen flashes messages at intervals throughout the show, stands in for the moon and sky, allows for artistic zoom-ins on Kanye and his flesh-bodysuit-clad backup dancers, and also serves as the traditional if-you’re-far-away-now-you-can-see-better Jumbotron-like apparatus.

“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,” the statement continued.

“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.”

At least he cares about his show’s quality, unlike Rihanna a certain bad gal everyone complains about.
