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.

It's pretty sad that today's performers need all this techno stuff. Apparently, raw talent just doesn't cut it anymore. And, at those inflated ticket prices, to boot!

Where are the photos of the crash?? Was anyone injured? Any witnesses to the carnage? K can't even fart without someone taking a picture yet a truck full of millions of dollars worth of equipment crashes in silence? YEAHRIGHT!!

Even God has been saying he'll show up for thousands of years and that hasn't happened yet so maybe they do have a lot in common.

the mask is so you can't see him lip synching, he is a not talent hack live, must be digitally altered for his cd's. It is probably not even him up there but a stunt double.

Take heed, Kanye! Maybe the real, true Jesus is sending you a message to cease and desist with your blasphemous nonsense! Of course, it could also be the fact that you are with a Kardashian now. Nothing goes right for Kardashian men!
P.S. The mask is a HUGE improvement over your ugly puss!

If you want to go see this man-child in concert then you had better be ready to accept him acting like one and cancelling for no good reason.

Important to note that this is the SECOND cancellation for Vancouver hours before the show. I'm not a fan but I would be very upset if I'd travelled to Vancouver twice for cancelled shows.

Freddie Mercury recorded, in 1 take, The Show Must Go On, when he only had weeks to live. Kanye can't perform because a video is broken?
