Kanye West’s “Yeezus” tour had a few setbacks last week due to one of the tour trucks with equipment for the show wrecking and damaging the 60 foot circular LED screen Kanye uses throughout the show. Kanye has reportedly canceled even more shows this week.
According to reports, Mr. West has unexpectedly canceled his shows scheduled this week in Chicago.
Kanye West has postponed both “Yeezus” tour dates in Chicago for this week. The shows were scheduled for November 7 and November 9, respectively. Just last week Kanye West had to postpone shows in Vancouver, B.C., Anaheim, Denver and Minneapolis due to a truck crash that resulted in the irreparable damage of a 60-ft circular LED screen that was used as part of his stage design.

Kanye has yet to announce the reason for the unexpected cancellations. Reports say they may be due to more technical difficulties.
A representative at the United Center, where the Chicago shows were to take place, would only confirm that the concerts were postponed and did not reveal any information regarding when they would be rescheduled. It is likely the case that West hasn’t been able to replace his LED screen yet. Ticket purchases are still available on United Center’s official website. As of press time, Kanye West’s November 8 concert at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio is still scheduled to take place. (Complex)
