Kanye postpones Minneapolis tour stop after equipment damaged in accident


Kanye West's concert tour date in Minneapolis has been postponed. The event was scheduled for Tuesday night at Target Center, as part of Kanye's "Yeezus" tour.

According to a report in the Star Tribune, no make up date has been set for the concert, but one is expected and fans are asked to hold on to their tickets.

WCCO reports that a tour truck was involved in an accident. The accident reportedly damaged staging equipment.

West also put stops on hold in Denver and Vancouver.

West's publicist said the Yeezus Tour's custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED's screen was damaged beyond repair in the accident.

The Star Tribune report highlights that it is the third time that West has canceled on Minneapolis fans. It is also the fourth major postponement at Target Center in recent weeks including Drake's, Lady Antebellum, and Pink's concerts that have all been postponed.

More information on a makeup date will be released later.
