Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West has postponed his Yeezus Tour following an accident where his equipment being carried in a truck got damaged.

The LED screen, which was to be used as a backdrop for West`s show, got damaged and the rapper cancelled the tour, reported Us magazine.

"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.

"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," a statement reads.
