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 doesn't sing, he doesn't rap, he doesn't even dance or juggle. He just gets on stage and has what I can only describe as a manic or psychotic episode before breaking down into a ranting session while his "music" plays in the background. If I wanna see someone go crazy I'll just YouTube Brittney shaving her head again not shell out $40-200. Also wasn't this tour supposed to make up for canceling the last one when his equipment was stolen, or be a continuation of that same tour or something?

Photos? No. Given location? No. Low ticket sales? Yes. He has officially morphed into K-Trash.

I guess actually singing is not good enough for his fans. He needs smoke and mirrors to fool concert goers into thinking he actually has talent. LMAO.

OMG Kayne looks very scary wearing those weird masks and ripped pants showing his underwear. He has no taste whatsoever in fashion and he dresses like crap all the time. I can't believe Kim gets turned on by his appearance? I wonder if Kayne gets dressed like this in the bedroom and does KK from behind looking like this? Now that would be one hell of a porno video with this kind of look.
