The accident damaged a gigantic LED screen that is crucial in giving audience the creative vision of the rapper.

Vancouver will have to wait for a Kanye West concert again. The rapper has postponed his Thursday, October 31 gig due to a truck accident that damaged the property of his concert. He is also forced to postpone Denver and Minneapolis dates.

"Yesterday, on the road to Vancouver, a truck carrying The Yeezus Tour's custom-made video truss and 60-foot circular LED screen was in an accident that damaged the gear beyond repair," Kanye's team released a statement. "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."

The damaged screen, which is placed in the background, is supposed to give a close-up image of the rapper throughout and flash messages as well as images for the audience. "Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans," the statement continued.

The team could not give a certain date on when the repair will be done. As a result, the Vancouver, Denver, and Minneapolis, which were scheduled for October 31, November 3 and November 5 respectively, have been postponed until further notice.

Kanye has previously rescheduled the Vancouver show from October 20 to 31 due to "unforseen circumstances."
