The 'Monster' rapper says he won't "compromise" on his creative vision for the show following an accident.

Kanye West has indefinitely postponed his 'Yeezus' tour after a road accident damaged several key pieces of staging equipment.

The 'All Of The Lights' rapper is currently out on the road but has been forced to postpone three upcoming shows due to the incident, with more postponements expected in the coming days.

"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," Kanye's label Island Def Jam said in a statement released this week. "The 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," the statement reads. "Kanye West will not compromise on bringing the show, as it was originally envisioned and designed, to his fans.

The statement confirms that Kanye's upcoming shows in Denver, Minneapolis and Vancouver are currently postponed with further announcements about the remaining dates yet to be announced.

Kanye West returned with his new album 'Yeezus' earlier this year.
