Kanye West blames second Vancouver show cancellation on a traffic accident
Kanye West has announced the reason for tonight’s show cancellation. In a press release, the rapper and his handlers blame a traffic accident.
Here’s the statement: “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.”
At press time, there was no confirmation on the rumour that the Yeezus truck was rammed Gone in 60 Seconds-style by Taylor Swift, who was driving one of the above emblazoned-with-her-face 18-wheelers while squelching “Imma let you finish your tour next year" on the CB radio.
There was also no substantiating the widely held belief that Kanye West hates Vancouver people, to the point where he’s ass-banged the social calendars of 12,000 residents twice in two weeks, having earlier cancelled an October 20 show at Rogers.
