[Update: The St. Louis date of this tour has been canceled, along with five other dates, "due to routing logistics."] This live shot, from an earlier show, was provided by tour PR.
Shortly after Kanye West cancelled the Yeezus tour's Vancouver stop today, Def Jam Records released a statement that the remainder of the tour is now postponed indefinitely due to equipment damage. West was slated to hit St. Louis in early December, but at this point it remains to be seen whether or not the show will go on.

Here's Def Jam's full statement:
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 Vancouver, Denver and Minneapolis dates have been postponed. Further details on the affected tour dates will be announced shortly.
