Kanye West Vancouver concert cancelled again

Dec 19 2017, 4:42 pm

The Kanye West Vancouver concert rescheduled for today, October 31, has been cancelled again.

On Wednesday, West cancelled his Anaheim show, which was set for Friday, November 1 – just one day before the Vancouver show. The Anaheim show has since been rescheduled to December 13.

West’s original Vancouver show was set for October 20 but was cancelled hours before due to the stage crew not having enough time to setup.

Concert staff were notified late Thursday morning that the show had been postponed and rescheduled for a later date.

Rogers Arena has confirmed the postponement, stating that it was because of an accident involving a truck carrying West’s custom 60-foot LED screen that was damaged:

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.

No information yet as to when the show will be rescheduled.
