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.

I'm starting to think those masks he's been wearing lately has cut off the oxygen to his brain. Or it could be the Ktrashian curse. But either way his career and popularity is spiraling down. And the one thing he's wanted most 'respect' is never going to happen now.

...sort of an admission that his "music" (if you can call it that) is worthless without the flashy show. If this were a true musician, he could lose all the technology and the beauty of the music would come through. He's just proved that there is nothing there without the distractions.

Yo Kanye,

I'm really happy for you, and I'm going to let you finish, but I had one of the best Vancouver concerts of the year, showed up, and managed to sell out.

Sincerely, Taylor Swift
