As he admitted in a radio interview this week, Kanye West is in the exploitation business.
He's not in the business of performing in front of thousands with less-than-ideal stage equipment, okay?!?
The rapper and the future Mr. Kim Kardashian postponed a number of tour dates yesterday after a truck carrying custom-made video screens got into an accident that damaged the gear "beyond repair," according to Kanye's official statement.
As a result, West has postponed his Yeezus Tour indefinitely.
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," reads the artist's statement.
It continues: "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."
Fans are understanably upset by this news. How will they take the drug of Yeezus without Yeezus around to inject them with it?!?
