More bad news for Kanye West's troubled Yeezus tour. The rapper has reportedly postponed two upcoming shows in Chicago, on Nov. 7 and Nov. 9, because of damaged equipment. West was forced to skip recent shows in Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis for the same reason.

"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," Def Jam said in a statement last week (posted by Complex). "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."

As of this posting, West's website still lists the Chicago shows, along with the Nov. 8 show in Columbus, Ohio, as happening on schedule. This post will be updated if and when those dates are officially postponed.
