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.

all about the money    

Kanye is getting to big for his britches. I can remember a lot of real performers who used to do concerts with just the band and them on stage and no othet theatrics. Apparently the theatrics are greater than Kanye if he can not perform without them. #looking4realtalent

Seems Kanye hawking his Yeezus tour merchandise at Pacsun since his tour has quickly become a non tour. Poor record sales, poor ticket sales, designers won't take him seriously.... Dudes got to make money somewhere.
