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.

He wears a hangman mask.
Obviously he has a death wish.
Why else be with Kim?
He's already dead + so is Kim.

I don't dislike him for who he's with, I've never liked the guy, especially for the sh!t he did to Taylor Swift

Wasn't this the rescheduled concert from when the truck was stolen with all the equipment?
I am not a fan of his, but are the tickets $40 - $225pp worth it?

Professionals always have a back up plan. This is just an excuse. Low ticket sales are probably the real reason. You have to sell a certain number of tickets for most venues. Kanye Kardashian has become a joke.
