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.
