NEW YORK (AP) — Kanye West is postponing the rest of his "Yeezus" tour after a 60-foot LED screen used during his shows was damaged.

A representative for the rapper says a truck that carried the screen was in an accident Wednesday that "damaged the gear beyond repair." The truck was on its way to Vancouver.

The rep said in a statement Thursday that it would be "impossible" to put on a show until the screen is repaired.

Thursday's show in Vancouver and next week's shows in Denver and Minneapolis were postponed. The West rep planned to provide an update later on any new dates.

West's tour kicked off this month in Seattle. Rapper Kendrick Lamar is his opening act.
