Kanye’s people have made it a point to note that there has been NO issue with ticket sales. In fact, they said the following:

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 only thing is Kanye continues to tour, but some dates are canceled whereas other dates are continuing on. Insiders are speculating that ticket sales are slow and low on dates, forcing them to simple cancel dates. Some have speculated that Kanye has upset the public to the point where they are no longer fans and some feel the Yeezus album simply didn’t do it for people. I dunno.

  • He’s canceling to save face. Ticket sales are likely down so rather than look the fool, pimp it off as if something important is happening

  • $21384666

    Stfu for his fans. He mad he cant show off them illuminati symbols and shit around gtfoh

  • no problem with ticket sales my ass…..

  • David Gonz

    lol @ lcd screen. GTFOH

  • TruthSerum

    His ego would never allow him to admit ticket sales are low, but I have a feeling that’s what the issue is.

  • DesignatedH8R

    I don’t know about other cities, but I know plenty of people in my city that already got their VIP tickets for this.

  • nastinupe

    I don’t know anyone that wants to go to this concert. Him or Jay Z. They are both tired now.

    • don king

      honestly i will never go 2 a jay z concert, dude just stands around n raps 4 a hour n wants his fans 2 call him hova n throw the “roc” up after each song. shit is mad corny n not at all worth the ticket prices. kanye is at least entertainin n puttin somethin new n creative in his shows. still i wouldnt pay over 100$ 4 a concert of an already super rich dickhead. wu-tang charged 100$ 4 a 2 hour show with all the livin members n they do a way better show n r bigger legends, in my opinion.

  • Ravishing Quinc Rude

    He canceled in my city, and I don’t see a lot of folks too upset about it.

  • I watch it on youtube..lol.

  • PhilTheGreat

    When he raps again instead of autotune, while repping his city and stop talking bout weird goofy wild ish, he will get some fans back.
