Kanye West
has pulled the plug on yet another concert -- and TMZ has learned it's because a car crash damaged the stage equipment.

Kanye canceled his Vancouver concert which was scheduled for tonight.  We're told on Wednesday ... a truck carrying a custom-made video truss and a 60-foot circular LED screen crashed and the items were damaged beyond repair.

The destroyed gear is key to Kanye's performance and he has told his people it's so "central to the creative vision ... it's impossible to put on the show."  We're told Kanye "will not compromise on bringing the show as it was originally envisioned and designed to his fans."

Kanye's rep tells us the rapper is also postponing shows in Anaheim, Denver and Minneapolis while new set pieces are being built.

People need to wake the fcuk up and realize he's a douche bag and stop paying money to see him or buy any of his garbage. everything this man does is a rip off from other people. He's a joke of a person. I hope someone lines his lame ass mask with superglue the next time the putz puts it on.

Kanye West canceles another concert on 'his tour'? What is it this time?

Did he walk into another street sign, more split pants?

Why would anyone pay to see him in the first place? With that tricked out Hannibal Lecter mask he has taken to wearing in his concert anyone could get up on stage and no one would be the wiser.

He needs that vital equipment to keep peoples focus off his lack of actual talent.

Kenya should cancel all of his concerts because of obamacare. Oh, hell, he should just quit forever.

so I guess just getting on stage and singing (or whatever it is he does) is not an option? These day musicians have to have a whole Broadway show behind them..I guess to hide the fact they have to musical talent.
