Kanye West's "Yeezus" tour seemingly isn't going as planned. First, fans in Anaheim, Calif. got bad news that their show was postponed, due to production logistics. Now, the rest of tour's dates are put on hold.

"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," a Def Jam Music Group spokesperson said in a statement obtained by E! News on Thursday.

The damaged gear was essential for the creative vision of the tour, the statement added. Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis are all cities affected by the incident.

"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."

Ticket refund information has not been detailed at this time.
